Tickets for the 84th Annual Hyundai Sun Bowl are on sale now and game officials say that fans have already begun purchasing tickets and renewing their ticket plans.
“Looking at our reports this past month, we noticed that we have had more people renew early than we’ve had in the past, so that is telling me that our regular ticket buyers are excited to come back to the game,” said Hyundai Sun Bowl Executive Director Bernie Olivas. “Our game is an El Paso tradition and the prices for tickets are very affordable, especially when one compares it to other forms of entertainment.”
This year’s game marks the 50th consecutive year the Sun Bowl has been broadcast by CBS, which makes it the second longest program on the same network on all of television only behind the Master’s. The 2017 Hyundai Sun Bowl will kick off at 1 p.m. (MT) Friday, December 29, 2017; and features teams from the ACC and Pac-12 conferences.
Last year’s Hyundai Sun Bowl featured the second and third overall picks in the NFL draft, Mitch Trubisky and Solomon Thomas, with Stanford edging UNC 28-26.
“We have various ticket options and packages to choose from,” Olivas said. “Sun Bowl Stadium does not have a bad seat in the house so any option will give the purchaser a great view of the playing field.”
The Hyundai Sun Bowl also offers Sun Bowl Six Pack ticket packages. The Sun Bowl Six Pack includes six Hyundai Sun Bowl Game Tickets, six Hyundai Sun Bowl Pregame VIP Tent Party tickets, six The Hospitals of Providence Rotary Sun Bowl Team Luncheon tickets and six WestStar Bank Don Haskins Sun Bowl Invitational Tickets.
Fans can purchase tickets and set them up to be renewed on an annual basis by calling the Sun Bowl Association office.
Tickets for the game can be purchased online or by calling the Sun Bowl Association office at 915-533-4416. Fans can also stop by the Sun Bowl Association office in El Paso at 4150 Pinnacle Street, Suite 100 to purchase tickets.
Ticket prices start at just $22 with other options priced at $32, $47, $57 and $62. A map of the stadium’s layout can be found at www.sunbowl.org
Fans can also help send others to the game through our “Salute a Soldier Program” and “Take a Child to the Game Program.”
“As a non-profit organization we are always looking for ways to have others join us in giving back to the community,” Olivas said. “Our ‘Salute a Soldier Program’ and ‘Take a Child to the Game Program’ are two great ways to show love to the community we live in. The Fort Bliss soldiers who have received tickets in the past have been ecstatic and it’s always great to give tickets to children, especially as a Christmas gift.”
The “Salute a Soldier Program” allows fans and companies the opportunity to give a Fort Bliss soldier a memory to last a lifetime. As a sponsor, you will give the soldier an opportunity to attend the game while your company is recognized during the game.
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 Hyundai Sun Bowl.
With the game falling only four 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.
