Colonnades Club

Welcome to the Colonnades Club, the home of Illini past and present. Before, during, and after the game, relax in the spacious lounge area, enjoy enhanced dining options, and visit with your friends, family, and business associates. In addition, pay tribute to fallen Illini by taking a stroll through the west colonnades, accessible from the club. For the game itself, move outside to your premier outdoor club seats, protected from rain and snow by the overhanging balcony above. A great combination of value and amenities, the Colonnades Club has become a destination in and of itself!  Click Here to view more pictures of this area.
