If you’re hoping to catch Caitlin Clark on the court during her senior season with Iowa basketball, be prepared to pay up.

Clark’s stature and popularity has continued to rise since Iowa’s runner-up finish in the 2023 NCAA Tournament. With her logo 3-pointers, her smooth assists and her easy confidence, the 21-year-old guard is grabbing plenty of attention.

“I mean, it’s jaw-dropping. It’s eye-popping,” WNBA legend Sue Bird told the Wall Street Journal. “It makes you take note of those moments.”

As Clark takes her show on the road with the Hawkeyes, fans can expect to pay higher ticket prices to see the superstar. A SeatGeek spokesperson told the WSJ that the average resale price for regular-season women’s basketball tickets is up 75% from last season. Two of the games with the highest demand feature Iowa.

Iowa’s Big Ten road games are reselling for an average of $135, while home games are reselling for $180, according to SeatGeek. Tickets to NCAA champion LSU’s road games are reselling for an average of $101, and their home games for $76.

Take Iowa’s visit to Ohio State, set for a 12 p.m. ET tipoff in Columbus. Resale tickets are going for $100 on StubHub, per The Columbus Dispatch. Meanwhile, tickets for games against Michigan and Indiana are $9 and $25, respectively.

And for Iowa fans looking to watch Clark play at home at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, they’ll likely have to hit the resale market. In August, the university announced that season tickets were sold out after they had to pause deposits in April due to increased interest. The school has also paused single-game ticket sales for the season.

Previously, Iowa had only sold out three regular-season games in program history.
