IU announces it will move football student-athletes for 2024 season – The Daily Hoosier

Indiana moves the football student section to the north end zone.

In a press release, IU Athletics states: “Students can look forward to being surrounded by fellow students in an expanded and relocated IU football student field at Memorial Stadium in 2024.”

The entire IU football student section will be relocated to the north end of the stadium between sections 13 and 24. You can see the seating chart below.

The school says the change will allow all IU students to sit together and that this contiguous student area will also allow more IU students to sit closer to the field at Memorial Stadium.

The general admission rules continue to apply to all student places, so that IU students can secure the best places on a first-come, first-served basis.

“The support we have received from IU students over the past few years has been tremendous, and that is why we are able to make this exciting change,” said Scott Dolson, IU vice president and athletic director.

“This new student area promises an electric atmosphere on match days, especially when the visiting teams have the ball at this end of the field. In addition, by moving it to the north, our students will be the first to greet our team on the field shortly before kick-off.

“We have had record attendance at IU football over the past few years, and a big reason for the increase has been the participation of our students. I think this change will make IU football game days that much better for those same students who are now eagerly awaiting the start of the Coach Curt Cignetti era.”

The IU football team opens the 2024 season at home against FIU on Saturday, August 31. The Hoosiers will play eight home games in 2024, including high-profile matchups against Nebraska (October 19), Washington (October 26), Michigan (November 9) and Purdue (November 30).
