The Jr. Cyclone Club is the official fan club for Cyclone fans 12th grade and younger.

In Jack Trice Stadium, the northeast and northwest hillsides are designated solely for the Jr. Cyclone Club and their parents. In order for the hillsides to remain exclusive for Jr. Cyclone Club families, hillside season and single-game football tickets will NOT be sold to the public. Jr. Cyclone Club parents may purchase a season “parent pass” in order to sit with their Jr. Cyclone Club member on the hillsides – a limit of two (2) parent passes per household.

  • When 2016 football season ticket renewals begin on February 19 via Cyclones.com, parents may also start registering their children online at jrcycloneclub.com. The early bird membership price is $49 each. Beginning March 19, memberships increase to $59 each.
  • When parents go online at jrcycloneclub.com to register their children for 2016-17, at the same time they may purchase up to two (2) season parent passes per household for hillside seating at $99 each.
  • The northeast and northwest hillsides do have limited seating capacity. We will sell a total of 6,000 seats between the Jr. Cyclone Club memberships and parent passes until they are sold out.
  • If parents already have reserved season or single-game reserved football tickets, they do NOT need to purchase any additional parent passes.

Club members receive an official club t-shirt, lanyard, membership card, invitations to special events & admission to over 70 sporting events at Jack Trice Stadium and Hilton Coliseum, including:

  • Football: Jr. Cyclone Club Hillsides for all home games (including the Iowa game)
  • Women’s Basketball: general admission seating in lower level sections 121-123
  • Volleyball: general admission
  • Wrestling: general admission for home meets
  • Gymnastics: general admission
  • Soccer: general admission
  • Softball: general admission

Jr. Cyclone membership cards are not valid for men’s basketball games. Members and their families will be given an opportunity to purchase tickets for select men’s basketball games. Detailed information will be sent in the fall.

Members do not receive free admission to post-season events. For example, NCAA Tournament events would require the purchase of a youth ticket to attend.
