Not Too Early

While we know it seems a long way off, it's time to start making plans for Cyclone football in the fall. We have been working diligently behind the scenes to secure ticket blocks for games of local interest including TCU (Sept 17), OSU (Oct 8) and Texas (Oct 15). Along with tickets we are also working to coordinate tailgates and hotels where appropriate. There are some pretty hard deadlines on these offers so please plan accordingly. All ticket details are below.

Please also keep in mind that Jamie Pollard will be here next Tuesday.  There have been a lot of changes at Iowa State and within the Big 12 over the past several months and I'd encourage you to attend this event and ask Jamie any questions that you might have. Consider this our own little version of the Cyclone Tailgate Tour that is so popular around Iowa each May.

Here is a brief rundown of what we have coming up over the next few months:
  • June 14th - Jamie Pollard Meet & Greet
  • June 14th - Cyclone Football Camp in Addison
  • July 17th - Big 12 Media Days w/ Meet the Cyclone Press
  • Aug 6th - Senior Send-Off
  • Sept 3rd - UNI Football Gamewatch - 6PM kickoff
  • Sept 10th - CyHawk Football Gamewatch - 6:30PM kickoff
  • Sept 17th - TCU Tailgate and Football Game - 11AM kickoff
  • Oct 8th - Oklahoma St Tailgate and Football Game - TBA kickoff
  • Oct 15th - Texas Tailgate and Football Game - TBA kickoff

Jamie Pollard Meet & Greet



We are thrilled and honored to announce that ISU Athletic Director Jamie Pollard has agreed to spend some time with the DFW Cyclones.  Jamie will hold an informal meet & greet at Babb's BBQ on Tuesday June 14th. This is truly a unique opportunity to get some one on one time with the main architect of Cyclone athletics over the past 11  years. Please plan to join us for what is sure to be an interesting and informative evening.

Mike Babb has reserved the entire restaurant for us and will have happy hour pricing and food specials. There is plenty of room for a large crowd so let's show Jamie how the DFW Cyclones can bring it.

Happy Hour starts at 5PM
Meet & Greet starts at 6:30PM

Showtyme Elite Football Camp

Feat. Cyclone Coach Matt Campbell

New ISU Football Coach Matt Campbell is camping with Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh in Addison. The camp is free to the public and provides a unique opportunity to see Coach Campbell and his staff in action as they interact with local high school players. There is no formal club event but this dovetails nicely with the Jamie Pollard Meet & Greet later that evening at Babb's BBQ in Dallas. Be sure to wear your Cyclone gear if you attend.

CyclONEfamily Picnic



We had a great time at the picnic on Lake Grapevine. The weather was perfect and everyone enjoyed the day. We already have the Pavilion at Rockledge Park reserved for the 2nd Annual CyclONEfamily Picnic next June.

Thanks to everyone who attended and special thanks to the picnic committee who put so much heart into this event. Please share your pictures in the photo album that we set up on the DFWCyclones website and the Facebook page.

It was a great day to be a DFW Cyclone!


2016 Cyclone Football Tickets


As always, we are offering tickets for all Iowa State football games in Texas and Oklahoma. It all starts in Fort Worth, then to Stillwater and finally down to Austin. Let's break the games down one at a time.  As always, the best tickets go to the people first in line so don't wait too long to get your orders in.

TCU - Sept 17th, 11AM Kickoff

The formal deadline has passed to purchase tickets but we were able to convince ISU to purchase an additional 50 tickets in our block for those of you who missed the deadline. The ticket price is a flat $85 and will be included in the original ISU block. I expect that we could have sold a lot more than that but the liability was too great to take the risk. These are the FINAL 50 tickets, once they are gone, it's over. You will need to get tickets through another source. We are planning a large tailgate with ISUAA and ISU Athletics at Paschal High School in Ft Worth similar to the one in 2014, only bigger.  Gametime has been announced as 11AM kickoff so all of the pieces are in place to make this a great event.  Don't hesitate on this limited time offer

Oklahoma State - Oct 8th, TBD Kickoff

We will have further details and ordering information soon on this game but the ticket prices will be set at $60 with seating located in Sect 228. We will also have a BYOT (Bring Your Own Tailgate) event to accompany this game. Keep an eye on the
DFWCyclones website and future newsletters for further details.


University of Texas - Oct 15th, TBD Kickoff

We are offering a full array of options for this game as we expect this to be the largest Cyclone event in Texas each time it comes around.  Based on the attendance of 450+ Cyclones from the 2014 tailgate we are planning on big things once again. We will offer ticket-only packages as well as tickets-plus-tailgate.  We have also coordinated with a couple of hotels in Austin to get group rates.  Details are below for everything.  Ticket deadline is Sunday, July 10th at Midnight. Tickets may be available after this date but most likely will not be located within the main Iowa State blocks that we have secured.

The DFW Cyclones are partnering with the Austin Iowa State Club and Soap Creek Cookers to provide entry into our All-You-Can-Eat BBQ including beverages. Package pricing reflects Early Bird rates. Tailgate pricing will increase as gameday approaches.
