Less than 1,000 tickets remain for the much-anticipated match-up between the No. 1 University of Akron men's soccer team and national power, No. 12 Indiana University on Friday, Sept. 18th, the Akron Athletics Department announced Wednesday.
Fans interested in attending the event are strongly encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance as some may be turned away from the gates on the day of the game due to unprecedented presales and the anticipated high volume of walk-up traffic. 
The only way to guarantee admission to the event is to purchase tickets in advance. To do so, stop by the UA Athletics Ticket Office - located in James A. Rhodes Arena - or call 1-888-99-AKRON. Ticket prices are $8 for adults and $4 for youth, ages 3-17.
With large crowds anticipated for the entire eight-game home schedule, another option may be to purchase a season ticket package. For $50, fans will gain access to all games - including other key match-ups against St. Louis, Ohio State and Michigan State. Youth season passes (ages 3-17) are available for $30.
Furthermore, in addition to the cost savings, all fans purchasing a season ticket will receive a complimentary Akron Soccer Scarf.
UA students with valid ID will still be admitted free of charge. However, due to limited availability and the high demand for tickets, only the first 1,000 students will be admitted. Gates will open at 4 p.m., one hour prior to the start of the first match of The University of Akron Tournament.
The Zips (2-0-0), who defeated SMU and No. 14 Tulsa last weekend at the Radisson Tulsa Airport Classic, will face the No. 12 Hoosiers on opening night of The University of Akron Tournament. The game is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m., following Florida Atlantic's match-up with St. Louis at 5 p.m. at Lee Jackson Field.
