March 19, 2008
DeKALB, Ill. - Northern Illinois will face Notre Dame at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox, on Wednesday, April 16 at 7 p.m. and proceeds from tickets sales will benefit the NIU February 14 Scholarship Fund. The Huskies and Fighting Irish last met on the diamond in 2005.
"It is an incredible show of support from the Chicago White Sox and from [head coach] Dave Schrage and the University of Notre Dame to be able to do this," said NIU head coach Ed Mathey. "To have the ability to put together an event like this at an amazing facility like U.S. Cellular Field to generate financial support for the scholarship fund is tremendous.
All tickets are $10 lower level reserved seating and will be available starting Monday, March 24 at 10 a.m. at whitesox.com, Ticketmaster phone lines at (312) 559-1212, Chicagoland Ticketmaster outlets, the NIU campus box office and the U.S. Cellular Field box office. All Ticketmaster fees have been waived for this event.
"We look forward to a great contest on the field and hope that all the NIU alumni and fans in the Chicago area will come out to support this endeavor," said Mathey. "Because the proceeds for this event are going to the Feb. 14 scholarship fund, I would certainly like to see this become one of the highest attended college games in the Midwest this season."
Gates to the ballpark will open at 6 p.m. Parking is free in Lots A (bus parking), B and C and concessions stands will be open during the game.
"The White Sox are honored to host Northern Illinois and Notre Dame at U.S. Cellular Field for this special game and important cause," Brooks Boyer, White Sox chief marketing officer and vice president. "Both schools boast a significant fan base in Chicago that will make for a great night of great baseball while serving a much more important cause."
