Ticket distribution and sales for the Nov. 10 Monon Bell football game between DePauw and Wabash will begin later this month, DePauw Director of Athletics Page Cotton announced.

During a two-day period (Oct. 22-23) DePauw students, staff and faculty may go to the DePauw University Bookstore in the lower level of the Memorial Student Union Building and pick up their complimentary tickets by showing their valid DePauw ID.

Current students may pick up one ticket, while staff and faculty will be allowed no more than two. During these two days, there will be no cash purchases available.

Wednesday, Oct. 24 is the first day for the sale of tickets. The $15 tickets may be purchased in person at the bookstore or over the phone by calling 765-658-4926. Hours are from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Fridays and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturdays. There is a limit of eight tickets per order.

All phone orders include a $1 shipping charge for standard U.S. mail delivery. Next day shipping is also available at an extra charge. All tickets sold at DePauw are for seating on the DePauw side only and there will be no will call at the stadium.

"The Monon Bell game is an incredibly popular event," Cotton said. "If fans want a ticket they need to make sure they obtain them early as the game will sell out quickly."
