While the college football season may have just started, fans are already looking to the bowl games and Hyundai Sun Bowl tickets are selling at a brisk pace.
“It seems like with the date of the game moving to Friday, December 30 the fans are excited to get back to their traditions,” Executive Director of the Sun Bowl Association Bernie Olivas said. “With last year’s game the day after Christmas, it was hard for people to get here. But with the game on Friday, December 30 this year, we are seeing more fans buying early and anticipate more fans in attendance.”
In last year’s Hyundai Sun Bowl fans saw Washington State defeat Miami 20-14.
Tickets for the 83rd Annual Hyundai Sun Bowl are on sale through Ticketmaster and the Sun Bowl Association office. The 2016 Hyundai Sun Bowl is set for Friday, Dec. 30 in Sun Bowl Stadium with kick-off scheduled for noon. The game features select teams from the ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference) and the Pac-12.

Fans may want to purchase of one of two ticket programs to help others attend the 83rd Annual Hyundai Sun Bowl: the “Salute a Soldier Program” and “Take a Child to the Game Program.”
With the “Salute a Soldier Program” fans and companies have the chance to give a Fort Bliss soldier a memory that will last a lifetime. As a sponsor you will give a soldier the opportunity to attend the game while your company will not only benefit out of goodwill, but will also be given recognition at 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 gives a child the opportunity to attend the game, which would make for a great Christmas gift as the game falls only a five days after the holiday. Anyone who takes part in this program will not only benefit out of goodwill but will also be given recognition at the game. The goal is to send 3,000 children to the game and give them an experience that will last a lifetime. The Sun Bowl Association can provide a list of youth organizations that your company may choose from, if you do not already have a personal favorite you are connected to in the community.
Contact the Sun Bowl Association ticket or marketing office for details on the two programs.
