  • VIP Floor - $100
  • Reserved seating (100 level) - $65
  • General Admission (200 – 300 level) - $40
  • Group (GA only) – Buy 10 or more tickets and get $40 off

A pre-sale for season-ticket holders for Rutgers wrestling and for Nebraska wrestling has already begun. This pre-sale opportunity will be conducted prior to the start of ticket sales to the general public on Jan. 22.
