MSU/Purdue Football Pre-Game Field Passes Auction

Are you attending the MSU/Purdue football game in West Lafayette on October 11th?  Would you like to go on the field for 20-30 minute during pre-game?  We will be holding two auctions (each auction is for two pre-game field passes).  The first auction will run from 8:00 a.m., Friday, Sept. 26 until 8:00 p.m., Sunday, Sept 28.  The second auction will run from 8:00 a.m., Friday, Oct. 3 until 8:00 p.m., Sunday, October 5.

All bids are to be submitted via email to msualumniindy@gmail.com.  After you submit a bid, you will receive a reply indicating “highest current bid” which means you have the highest bid so far or a reply indicating “bid again and the current high bid amount.” Once a higher bid is submitted, the previous highest bid will be notified they have been outbid.  Current highest bid amount will be posted on this website daily at noon and 4:00 p.m.. Time on the email will be used as a tiebreaker if needed.  The winning bid amount must be paid via PayPal within 24 hours of being notified that you are the winning bid.  All proceeds will benefit the Indy Spartans Scholarship Fund.

You are bidding on two pre-game field passes for the MSU/Purdue football game.  Approximately one-hour prior to kickoff you and your guest will need to report to a designated location and then will be escorted to the field.  You will be on the field for 20-30 minutes during warm-ups.
