Fans Will Be Allowed at 2021 Big 10 Tournament Games
The Big Ten Conference will allow a limited number of fans to attend this year's Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament, happening March 10 through March 14, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
According to Hawkeye Sports, about 8,000 fans will be permitted to attend with socially-distanced seating set inside the venue.
The Big Ten reports that each teams' season ticket holders will get the first crack at seats. Ticket information is still being finalized so fans should check back often for updates on either the Hawkeye Sports or the Big Ten websites.
For fans not fortunate enough to score seats to Indy for the games in person, the Big Ten Television Network (BTN) says it will televise the first 10 games of the tournament, with the semifinals and championship game to be broadcast on CBS Sports.
After rolling over the Ohio State Buckeyes 73-57 on Sunday, the Hawkeyes host the Nebraska Cornhuskers tonight at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Tip-off time is 8:00 p.m.
Iowa plays its final regular-season game at home just three days later on Sunday, March 7 against the Wisconsin Badgers. That tip-off is set for 11:37 a.m.
The Hawks are ranked #5 this week in the Associated Press Weekly Top 25 Poll. It's Iowa's highest ranking in the first week of March since 1956 when Iowa was ranked fifth, 65 years ago.
The women's Big Ten Tournament, which begins Tuesday, will also allow fans. According to the Big Ten, 2,500 fans will be allowed into each women's game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse next week. Those tickets went on sale earlier today and are available HERE. All games of the tournament will be televised by either Big Ten Network, FS1, FS2, or ESPNU. The complete television schedule is available HERE.
