    In an effort to better serve our fans, the Northwestern Athletic Department opens Welsh-Ryan Arena 90 minutes prior to all men's basketball home games. This Saturday's game against Illinois tips off at 3:30 p.m. with doors opening at 2 p.m. The game is a sellout.

    Traffic around Welsh-Ryan Arena is expected to be heavier than normal due to the expected crowd.

    CTA, Metra, and Pace all provide service to Welsh-Ryan Arena. The CTA Purple Line from downtown Chicago stops at Central Street where you may connect to the #201 CTA bus that stops a block from the arena or walk three blocks west on Central Street to the stadium.

    The Metra Union Pacific North Line from downtown Chicago and Kenosha, Wis., stops at Central Street where you may also connect to the #201 CTA bus that stops a block from the arena or walk three blocks east on Central to the stadium.

    Pace route #213 runs along Green Bay Road and connects with five other Pace routes, and also stops at Central Street.

    For times, directions and connections to all Northwestern home games call 836-7000 (city or suburbs), or click here.

    The Northwestern Athletic Department continues to urge fans to arrive as early as possible to all games to help avoid long lines entering our parking lots and at our lobby ticket windows.

    As always, thank you for your support of the Wildcats.
