Northern Illinois University Athletics introduces The Nelson Club at NIU, a new way for fans to enjoy Huskie men’s and women’s basketball games.

The Nelson Club features enhanced food and beverage options and the opportunity to interact with special guests.

Located in the Nelson Suites at the top of the seating areas and featuring a great view of the court below, the Nelson Club at NIU opened Feb. 9 during the Huskie basketball doubleheader.

Seats in the Nelson Club will be sold in advance for $26 (men’s games) and $24 (women’s games). Call 815-753-1923 during regular business hours to purchase tickets. The ticket includes full access to the buffet and cash bar throughout the game, as well as a seat in the Nelson Club area.

In addition, courtside ticket holders and donors of the Huskie Athletics Scholarship Fund at the $1,000 level and above who are basketball season ticket holders can purchase tickets to the buffet for only $16 per person.

During each Nelson Club game, a line-up of special guests, such as NIU Associate Vice President and Athletics Director Sean Frazier, will join fans in the suite before and during the game.

The Nelson Club at NIU will be open for the Feb. 20 men’s game against Eastern Michigan (reserve by Feb. 14), the Feb. 22 women’s game against Central Michigan (reserve by Feb. 17), the Feb. 26 men’s game against Toledo (reserve by Feb. 21) and the March 8 men’s game against Ball State (reserve by March 5).
