“One of the greatest things I have seen since coming to Illinois is the feeling and growth of #famILLy in all areas of our program,” said head coach Bret Bielema via release. “Our roster and our fans are becoming more together every day. With this FamILLy First initiative and new affordable pricing on season tickets, let’s continue to build the numbers for seven famILLy reunions at Memorial Stadium throughout the fall.”
Other benefits for season ticket holders include game day deals on concessions and merchandise and savings on golf rounds at the Atkins Golf Club at the University of Illinois.
