A guide to attending NIU sporting events – Northern Star

Attention huskies: It’s that time again to cheer on the NIU athletes! NIU has three primary athletic facilities on campus: Huskie Stadium, the Convocation Center, and the Soccer and Track & Field Complex.

NIU students can use their OneCard to attend any home event for free. Students can request their tickets through Paciolan, NIU’s new ticket provider. Tickets can be received via SMS on your phone and even allow for easy ticket transfers between guests.

All NIU sports venues tend to share the same policies, so check online if you’re not sure what’s prohibited. Visitors wishing to bring a bag should ensure it meets facility requirements. Checking online will show pictures of acceptable bags such as: B. small clutches, clear tote bags and plastic bags.

Rules at Huskie Stadium

Huskie Stadium is home to the NIU football team. Ticket prices range from $23-$35 in the West Stand and $18-$30 in the East Stand. If you’re an avid soccer fan, season ticket options are also available.

Do you plan to fold during the game? Be careful as you cannot re-enter once the third quarter has started. Also, the fans want to be the loudest when cheering for their team, but noisemakers and horns are not allowed in the stadium.

Coolers, food and cans are not allowed in the stadium, but fans can head to The Yard before each game to get a tailgate! The Yard, located on the West Lawn, is the place to meet current and former NIU soccer students while enjoying food and music. The yard opens three hours before kick-off and closes 30 minutes before kick-off.

The draft center, football and athletics complex

NIU’s volleyball and basketball teams can be found at the Convocation Center. All tickets can be purchased at the ticket office of the Convocation Center at entrance 2. Single-day reserved-seating tickets for men’s basketball are available for $10, while general admission tickets are $8. For women’s basketball, reserved seats for singles games are $8 and general admission is $5.

If you want to see a volleyball game, you can get in with a $6 ticket. Season ticket options are also available for our sports fans who never miss a game.

The track and soccer complex, located directly west of the Convocation Center, hosts NIU’s men’s and women’s soccer home games. The events are free for all spectators.

Now that you know where you’re going and how to get in, support your fellow huskies this semester!
