Chamber sets up Fort Madison Day at Carver-Hawkeye


Tickets go on sale Nov. 10th at Partner's office


FORT MADISON - The Fort Madison Area Chamber of Commerce has once again partnered with the University of Iowa Athletics to secure premium seating for the community to enjoy an Iowa Men’s Basketball game. This year, we will cheer on the Iowa Hawkeyes as they take on the Western Illinois Leathernecks on Wednesday, December 29th at 7:00 pm.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, November 10th at 9:00 am at the Fort Madison Partners office, located at 614 7th Street.

A number of businesses in the community have stepped up but we are seeking more sponsors to help us provide a long sleeve t-shirt with every ticket purchase.  “We are excited to have the community sitting in the stands of Carver Hawkeye Arena all sporting a Fort Madison Day t-shirt!” exclaims Savanna Collier, Chamber Director. Tickets will be available for $10 for children and $15 for adults. The Chamber is also partnering with Burlington Trailways to offer a bus ride to Iowa City for the game.  Bus tickets will cost $10 per person.

Tickets and t-shirts will be available before Christmas and will make the perfect gift for that Hawkeye fan in your family!  To ensure prompt delivery, the opportunity to purchase tickets runs through Friday, November 19th at 3:00 pm. Tickets ordered after November 19th are not guaranteed a t-shirt with their ticket purchase. The Fort Madison Partners office is located at 614 7th Street and is open M-F 8:30 am – 4 pm. On Tuesday, November 16th, the office will stay open until 6:00 pm to accommodate those who work late. To make other arrangements, please call 319-372-5471.

Other perks are being negotiated at this time with the Athletic Department at the University of Iowa.
