Monon Bell Ticket Procedures Announced
October 16, 2009
October 16, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — Ticket distribution and sales for the November 14 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 (October 26-27) DePauw students, faculty and staff may pick up their complimentary 2009 Monon Bell game tickets in the Office of Student Life in room 232 of the Memorial Student Union Building.
By showing their valid DePauw I.D., current students may pick up one ticket, while faculty and staff will be allowed no more than two each. During these two days there will be no cash purchases available.
Wednesday, October 28, is the first day for the sale of tickets. The $15 tickets may be purchased with a credit card through the DePauw Web site. That link will be posted on the Monon Bell page. There will be a $1 per order shipping and handling fee and a maximum purchase of eight tickets per order.
For those without Internet access, tickets may also be purchased by calling the Office of Student Life at 765-658-4199 or, in person, in room 210 of the Memorial Student Union Building. All sales, including those online, will be conducted between the hours of 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Complimentary tickets may also be picked up during this time, but are subject to availability.
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.
"The Monon Bell game continues to be 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."
Kickoff for the 116th meeting between the two schools and the 78th for possession of the Monon Bell is set for just after 1 p.m. on Saturday, November 14 at 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 fee for parking in the Blackstock lot. Complete parking and tailgating information is available here.
This year's game will again be telecast across America on the high definition network HDNet with telecast parties arranged by DePauw and Wabash alumni in over 60 cities. The all-time series is tied 53-53-9, while DePauw leads in games played for the Monon Bell by a 37-34-6 count after last year's 36-14 win in Crawfordsville.
