U of I Athletic Taking Big Budget Hit

University of Iowa Athletic Director Gary Barta has let Hawkeye fans know the dire budget situation due to the postponement of the fall sports schedule especially football. Barta said in the open letter to Hawkeye fans that Iowa anticipates lost revenue of approximately $100 million and an overall budget deficit of between $60- and-75 million.

Barta also added the Big Ten Conference and the Iowa athletics department staff is working diligently on the winter and spring sport seasons while simultaneously exploring how a spring season for fall sports would work.

Barta says Hawkeye fans who purchased football season tickets should email tickets@hawkeyesports.com to request a full refund.
