DePauw University tickets for the 118th Monon Bell Classic football game with Wabash College Nov. 12 at Blackstock Stadium, will become available later this month, Page Cotton, DPU director of athletics, has announced.
Ticket distribution for DePauw students, faculty and staff will take place over a two-day period, Oct. 24-25, with complimentary 2011 Monon Bell game tickets available for pickup in the ballroom of the Memorial Student Union Building. The distribution takes place between 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. each day.
With a valid DePauw I.D., students may pick up one ticket, while faculty and staff will be allowed no more than two each. During the two days there will be no cash purchases allowed and it will be the only time complimentary tickets are made available.
On Wednesday, Oct. 26, beginning at 8:30 a.m., tickets on the DePauw side of the stadium will become available for sale online. The tickets, which are $15 each, may be purchased online only with a credit card. There will be a $1 per order shipping and handling fee and a maximum purchase of eight tickets per order.
Online sales will continue until a sellout of the DePauw side is reached. All tickets sold at DePauw (gold tickets) are for seating on the DePauw side only and there will be no will call at the stadium.
"If fans want a ticket, they need to make sure they obtain them early as the game will sell out quickly," Cotton notes. "The popularity of the Monon Bell game continues to grow and we look forward to providing fans a fun and safe environment."
Kickoff for the 118th gridiron meeting between the two schools and the 80th for possession of the Monon Bell is set for just after 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12 at DPU's Blackstock Stadium.
Gates open at 11:30 a.m. and the Blackstock parking lot will open to the public at 9 a.m. There will be a $5 cash fee for parking in the Blackstock lot.
This year's game will again be telecast across America on the high-definition network HDNet. Wabash leads the all-time series 55-53-9, while DePauw leads in games played for the Monon Bell by a 37-36-6 count.
