$15 Tickets to BC Game for DeKalb County Residents
Attention ALL DeKalb County, Illinois Residents:

NIU invites you out to the Boston College game on September 1st at Huskie Stadium for DeKalb County Day!

This is the biggest game at Huskie Stadium since NIU beat Maryland in 2003. We need your support in the stands to #BLACKOUTBC and root on the Huskies to victory.

If you live in the DeKalb County zip codes listed in the graphic below you can purchase NIU vs. Boston College tickets for ONLY $15 per ticket!

That price is up to 50% off the regular ticket price! No ticket minimum purchase is required. Buy 2 tickets or 20, we just want you to join us!

To receive this special rate: Valid for Call-In Orders Only - Call 815-753-PACK (7225) by Thursday, August 31st.

Great promo. I have always believed that the NIU athletic department and marketing team needs to do a much better job at engaging with the Dekalb and surrounding communities. Make them proud to have a D1 football squad in their neighborhood and get them out to the game! We need everybody's support.

+1 Kudos to whoever came up with this one. We need a sellout for BC and we need to engage the local community.

Love this idea. Can't wait until this game. Hope to see 20,000+ fans there for BC. Think it's been a while since we topped that number, hasn't it?

Brilliant idea!!! Townies should feel like they play a part in Huskie Success. At some of the big schools in small towns businesses shut down to get to a game in their community.

One of my friend's lives in DeKalb county. I will ask him to order us the tickets since I'm no longer doing season tickets and this is the only game I will be in Illinois for.

Another idea from the DogPound, utilized by the administration.

From an earlier thread. "And that is how you build a bigger, more consistent fan base. Having the locals, roughly defined as east of the Mississippi, south of Wisconsin and north of 80, interested and invested in going to the games. Maybe NIU should have "county days", where residents of various Northern Illinois counties get special rates. "

I have 3 tickets available for free if anyone would like them mailed. Can't figure out how to print or transfer them on the ticketmaster site, so would have to be snail mail.

All these promotions have been great. NIU is working hard to promote the game and sell tickets. County residents will be divided however with both DeKalb and sycamore playing home football games. That will keep at least a few thousand fans away. Many plan to come late but attendance will probably becl counted already.

Correction, DeKalb is home but sycamore is away.

Does anyone actually answer the ticket office phones? I've been calling two days now I can't get anyone to answer. Is everyone on vacation for game week?

Yeah I've called and the same thing. Still waiting on my parking pass that they "were mailing" out a couple weeks back. Now who knows if I will be allowed in my lot Friday.
