Sun Bowl Selection Sunday Party set for Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino

As the NCAA, the Football Bowl Association and the Division I football conferences are scheduled to announce all placements for post-season play Sunday, December 8 at approximately 2 p.m. (MT), the Sun Bowl Association is planning a party of their own.

A Selection Sunday Party will be hosted by the Sun Bowl Association to announce the 2019 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl match-up at Sunland Park Racetrack (1200 Futurity Drive, Sunland Park, N.M.) on Sunday, December 8 from 12:30-2:30 p.m. (MT).

The event is free and open to the public as there will be plenty of opportunities to win some great prizes.

“This has been a very interesting college football season as teams from both conferences were very competitive and the standings were changing week after week,” said Executive Director of the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl Bernie Olivas. “Other than Clemson out of the ACC and Oregon and Utah out of the Pac-12, both conferences were evenly matched.”

The 2019 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl game will take place on Tuesday, December 31 at noon MT (2 p.m. ET) at Sun Bowl Stadium in El Paso.

The 2019 game will mark the 86th anniversary of the Sun Bowl game and the 52nd consecutive broadcast on CBS. The game will feature selections from the ACC and Pac-12 conferences.

Stanford defeated Pitt, 14-13 in the 2018 Sun Bowl.

What: Selection Sunday

When: Sunday, Dec. 8, 2019

Time: 12:30-2:30 p.m. (MT)

Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl tickets now on sale

The 86th Annual Tony The Tiger Sun Bowl officials announced that tickets are on sale now for the region’s college bowl game.

“With the El Paso Community continuously supporting the Sun Bowl Association we are excited to show our loyal fans some new ideas we have coming with our new title sponsor,” Executive Director, Bernie Olivas. “The newly named Tony The Tiger Sun Bowl will maintain some of its traditions while adding fun new aspects to game day.”

The Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl is set for a 12 p.m. (MT) kick-off on Tuesday, December 31, 2019 with teams from the ACC and Pac-12 facing each other.  The game will be televised on CBS for the 52nd consecutive year.

The Sun Bowl Association is also encouraging local fans to help send others to the game through their “Salute a Soldier Program” and “Take a Child to the Game Program.”

The “Salute a Soldier” program allows fans and companies the opportunity to give soldiers a memory to last a lifetime. Sponsors who make purchases through the “Salute a Soldier Program” give soldiers an opportunity to attend the game while your company is recognized during the game.

“With so many military members living in and around the El Paso area this gives us a chance to give back to soldiers for their commitment and service,” said Olivas.

If a fan or company would prefer to take part in the “Take a Child to the Game” program, that person or company affords local children the opportunity to attend the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl.

With the game falling only six days after Christmas, this would make an excellent Christmas gift. The goal is to send 3,000 children to the game and give them an experience they will never forget. Along with the goodwill that comes with sending a child to the game, any person or company taking part in this program will receive recognition at the game.

The Sun Bowl Association is happy to provide a list of youth organizations that your company may choose from if you do not already have a connection with one in the community. Contact the Sun Bowl Association ticket or marketing offices for details on the two programs.

“The ‘Take a Child to the Game’ program is a great way to inspire our youth to become involved in and around athletics and sports. It also makes for a great opportunity to bring cheer to youth who may not always have the opportunity to attend such a big event,” Olivas mentioned. “This fits in with Mission Tiger and initiative in keeping middle school athletics alive.”

The ticket prices start at $22 and vary depending on the stadium’s seat location:

$22 – End Zone
