See the lengths devoted fans are going to see hoops star Caitlin Clark

No matter how you measure it, University Iowa basketball player Caitlin Clark is a big draw.

Fans are driving hundreds of miles and digging deep in their pockets to pay hundreds for Iowa women’s basketball tickets and watch the Hawkeye phenom. With each game, Clark narrows the gap on the men’s and women’s career scoring records.

Both fandom metrics will converge Saturday afternoon in Iowa City, Iowa, where the No. 5 Hawkeyes play the Cornhuskers at 2 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.

Vivid Seats analyzed tickets purchased through their site. They found basketball fans, on average, will be traveling 302 miles—about the distance from Lincoln, Nebraska to Iowa City—to see the game. The average ticket price: $251. More on ticket prices later.

Average ticket prices jump this season

Seats are still available for Saturday afternoon’s game as of Friday afternoon, but you can expect to pay well over $100 on the secondary market for any seat in the building.

Seat Geek’s algorithm considers one, sixth-row seat at center court to be an ‘amazing deal’ at $305. A seller on Vivid Seats is offering set of two sideline seats for $497 each.

Previous Iowa-Nebraska games no match for these prices

Vivid Seats looked at the average cost of tickets for every Big Ten women’s basketball game. Unsurprisingly, prices are up across the conference—especially when Clark is in town.

Priciest home games this season to see Iowa and Caitlin Clark

We’re still five weeks away from the Ohio State-Iowa rematch in Iowa City. The No. 12 Buckeyes upset the Hawkeyes last weekend in a 100-92 shootout. That dropped Iowa three spots in the women’s basketball rankings.

If avenging their second loss of the season wasn’t enough, it could also be the last regular season game Clark plays on the Carver-Hawkeye Arena court. Prices already range from $312 to $1,153 on Seat Geek and $330 to $3,175 on Vivid Seats.
