Since Iona is a very small school, the sports program does exceptionally well. Iona has 21 NCAA Division I teams and has had several nationally-ranked teams in the past, even if the basketball team receives the most school spirit. All of the home games are right on campus, and the team receives tremendous support from the New Rochelle community. Typically, students go to the games and then go to the bars after to party. Tickets for all sporting events are free for students, and the only ticket that's difficult to get is when basketball sells out.
There are many intramural sports with which to get involved, as Iona offers a variety of sports. There is basketball, handball, wiffle ball, flag football, indoor soccer, volleyball, badminton, and ultimate Frisbee. The facilities are accessible and up-to-date. Students are allowed to lounge or play on the soccer field when it is open. There are also two courts for pick-up games of basketball along with a gym for students. The facilities are on a smaller scale at Iona, which is not a surprise, considering the small size of the College.
