Tickets to Rec Hall to see the Nittany Lions wrestle this season have been in high demand.
And as the season reaches the halfway point, that demand is only going up.
Assistant Director of Athletics Communication Patrick Donghia has announced that next Sunday's Big Ten dual with the Ohio State Buckeyes is now sold out. That includes the 300 standing room only tickets what were made available.
It is the Lions' third sellout of the season, as the team continues preparations for its sold out home showdown with Iowa on Sunday. The Iowa dual sold out in record time. The third match that sold out was against Minnesota, which beat Penn State back in November.
Rec Hall's wrestling capacity is 6,502. After student tickets are distributed prior to both the Iowa and Ohio State matches, there will be more than 6,700 tickets distributed for each of those matches, the press release said.
Penn State is averaging 6,100 fans per home dual this year and after the next two weeks, that number is set to rise.
A very limited number of tickets remain for Penn State’s home duals against No. 10 Michigan on Feb. 5 and No. 9 Pittsburgh on Feb. 19.
