The Traditions Club provides fans comfortable, padded chairs in a prime location of the arena with access to the new Traditions Club. Fans at Memorial Stadium already love the conveniences of the Colonnades Club, and the Traditions Club features many of the same amenities - including upscale concessions with full beverage service. The private club spaces are accessible only to premium seating members.

*There are substantial tax benefits associated with leasing premium seating. The annual financial commitment to lease these opportunities contains both a taxable portion (for the cost of goods and services provided, amenities such as game tickets, parking, catering, etc.) and a tax-deductible charitable gift. According to current IRS regulations, after the taxable portion is subtracted from each annual commitment, 80% of the remaining portion is a tax-deductible charitable gift. The value of goods/services received will be calculated annually and provided by the University of Illinois. Consult your tax advisor to learn how the IRS guidelines relate to your specific situation.

** * Prices reflect annual commitments due each year by June 1. After establishing a campaign gift commitment, the first annual lease payment is due June 1, 2017. Prices will increase every commitment year by 2.5%. Discounts for prepayment of entire contract term are available. An annual I FUND commitment is required of all Founders Suite patrons for the life of their contract. By maintaining an I FUND account, Founders Suite patrons will have the opportunity to purchase special single-game tickets and receive an I FUND season parking pass. Single-game tickets and the I FUND parking pass are allocated based on I FUND club level and priority point totals. The minimum required I FUND membership for the Traditions Club is the Champion level.
