IOWA CITY, Iowa (BVM) – The summer of Caitlin Clark in Iowa City rolls on, as the star guard gets set for her upcoming senior campaign with the Hawkeyes. 

From PGA Tour appearances to butter sculptures, the Clark craze has fully taken over the Iowa fanbase this summer, so much so that the university announced that season tickets for the upcoming 2023-24 year are already sold out.


Following a historic past season for the women’s basketball team, the significant feat becomes the first time in school history that the program has sold out Carver-Hawkeye Arena. 

Back in April, Iowa Athletics had to pause season ticket deposits because of the growing interest, receiving deposits for 6,700 new season tickets, which was an addition to the 6,500 already existing ones. Clark and the Iowa program set a school record with 31 wins this past year, while finishing as the national championship runners-up following its loss against the LSU Tigers.

Clark, who was the consensus National Player of the Year and Collegiate Woman of the Year, averaged 27.8 points, 8.6 assists and 7.1 rebounds per game, leading to the recent success in the Iowa ticket office. Up until Monday’s announcement, the Hawkeyes had only sold out three regular-season games in program history. The efforts of this past campaign helped fuel the nation’s second-ranked attendance, with a chance to build upon the success over this upcoming year as the school looks to stake its claim for the top spot in 2023-24. 

“Going to be one insane season!!,” Clark posted on X, formerly Twitter. “Hawk fans are insane!!!!”


The Hawkeyes will tip off their opening action in 2023 on Oct. 15, hosting “Crossover at Kinnick” against the DePaul Blue Demons in a scrimmage inside Kinnick Stadium. With several key players returning like Clark, Gabbie Marshall and Kate Martin, Iowa could be in for its most historic season to date.
