October 10, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — DePauw's ticket distribution and sales for the November 12 Monon Bell football game against Wabash will begin later this month, DePauw Director of Athletics Page Cotton announced.
During a two-day period (October 24-25) DePauw students, faculty and staff may pick up their complimentary 2011 Monon Bell game tickets in the Memorial Student Union Building Ballroom. The distribution takes place between 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. each day.
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 allowed and this will be the only time the complimentary tickets will be made available.
Wednesday, October 26, marks the first day for the sale of tickets for the DePauw side. The $15 tickets may be purchased online only with a credit card through the DePauw Web site. That link will also 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. Online sales begin at 8:30 a.m. EDT on October 26 and 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," DePauw Director of Athletic Page Cotton said.
"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 meeting between the two schools and the 80th for possession of the Monon Bell is set for just after 1 p.m. on Saturday, November 12 at Blackstock Stadium.
