University of Illinois Basketball FAQ

Where will my fan cutout be located?
If you purchase the Lower Baseline package, your cutout will be placed Sections 114-117 or 105-108 behind both baskets. If you purchase the Upper Baseline package, your cutout will be placed in Sections 134-138. If you purchase the Sideline package, your cutout will be placed in Sections 109-113.

Can I submit a pic in a military uniform?
Yes, Illinois will allow uniformed military personnel. We encourage as much orange and blue as possible in the stands. Certain apparel is not allowed: third-party branding, other NCAA teams, lewd, inappropriate or offensive photos, alcohol, illegal drugs or firearms/weapons, political statements or slogans.

Can I have multiple people on one cutout?
One person is allowed per cutout, however, you can save 10% on all cutouts if you purchase two, 15% if you purchase three and 20% if you purchase four or more.

Can I submit a pic of my pet for my cutout?
Of course, for the first time in history pets will be allowed inside State Farm Center! Your furry family members are welcome.

Will multiple cutouts in the same order be sat together?
Placement is not guaranteed but if you purchase multiple fan cutouts in the same transaction you will be installed together in the stands. If you place an order with multiple cutouts but select different options (i.e. some have shipping and some don't) they will not be sat together.

How is the team going to let me know where to find my cutout?
As part of your package, you will be emailed a photo of your cutout installed inside State Farm Center.

Do I get my fan cutout back and if so how?
If you purchase the add-on Brad Underwood autograph, the cutout will be shipped to you at the end of the season. If you don’t purchase the add-on Brad Underwood autograph option, the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics will also offer a time to pick up your cutout in-person in Champaign.

Is my purchase tax-deductible? If so, how will the team or charity send me written confirmation?
No, the fan cutout is a purchase outside of the University of Illinois Foundation. All proceeds from the purchases will go to the general Athletics Department operating fund.
