UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The 2015 BJC Dual, pitting the Penn State Nittany Lion wrestlers against the Iowa Hawkeyes on Sunday, Feb. 8, is sold out. This marks the second straight year that the Penn State wrestlers have sold out the near-16,000 seat venue. This time the event sold out three months in advance.
Tickets for the event began selling quickly when Penn State’s 5,000-plus season ticket holders were given first opportunity to purchase additional seats. The general public was able to begin buying tickets in groups of 20 or more on Nov. 4 and that allotment was gone on its first day of sale. Nittany Lion Club members were then given an opportunity to purchase a limited number of remaining tickets today and those seats sold out in less than an hour.
Penn State students will be admitted on a first come, first serve basis on the day of the event to the reserved student sections. Due to the overwhelming response to the dual, and with the event now at capacity, there will be no further sales for the meet. The dual meet, which begins at 1 p.m., will be televised live on the Big Ten Network.
A limited number of standing room only tickets are available for select Penn State Rec Hall dual meets. For ticket inquiries, call 1-800-NITTANY Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Penn State continues dual meet action in two weeks, visiting Pittsburgh on Friday, Nov. 21, for a 7 p.m. dual wrestled at Pitt’s Peterson Events Center. Penn State then treks to Clarion on Saturday, Nov. 22, for a 7 p.m. dual as well.
