DEKALB, Ill. - Northern Illinois head football coach Jerry Kill has secured a rooftop overlooking Wrigley Field for the Chicago Cubs' May 2 afternoon game versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. The event is open to the public and costs $150 per person; with all proceeds directly benefiting the football program's operations, including recruiting.

Tickets, food and beverages will all be included with the rooftop purchase. The event will begin at 12:50 p.m., 30 minutes prior to first pitch (1:20 p.m.). The exact location of the rooftop will be forwarded onto attendees at a later date.

"I honestly believe it is one of the best opportunities we could offer to our loyal supporters," said NIU head football coach Jerry Kill. "The game is a blast, the food is fantastic, and the chance to spend some time with fellow NIU fans is unmatched."
