It is the toughest ticket in Iowa.
For more than three decades championship Saturday has been sold out at state wrestling and more than 16 thousand fans will be jammed intro Wells Fargo Arena Saturday night. The tickets are scooped up quickly when they go on sale in December and Lewie Curtis of the Iowa High School Athletic Association says several thousand orders cannot be filled.
With only a few tickets available on the secondary market Curtis says there are always fans scrambling to find seats for Saturday night.
While Saturday is sold out Curtis says officials will find a way to get the parents of a finalist in the arena if they don’t have tickets.
Curtis says the large crowds all week mean more work for arena security.
