  • The Waterloo Black Hawks are pushing back the end of the team’s season ticket renewal period to June 2nd, adding nearly a full month to the original deadline.

Director of Sales Parish Mason explained the decision, which was made after the State of Iowa lengthened COVID-19-related limitations on Black Hawk County businesses through May 15th.

“We are up, operational, and helping our fans, but we know that many of our season ticket holders are still sorting through this major interruption to their regular routine, and we want to be mindful of their needs at this time,” Mason said. “We have set up a special renewal hotline, and I encourage anyone with questions to call or text; we look forward to assisting, and we are all looking ahead toward the 2020/21 season.”

That ticket renewal hotline number is (319) 214-0199.
