When the UTEP Miners take to the field this fall for their first home game in the Sun Bowl, fans will have an opportunity to experience the game from a whole new perspective.
On Monday afternoon, officials announced the addition of the Party Patio, the newest VIP area in the iconic venue, for the 2019 UTEP football season.
“We are excited to add the Party Patio to the Sun Bowl environment,” UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter said. “Today’s fan is looking for exclusive and unique experiences on game day and this space will provide exactly that, allowing UTEP fans to socialize and enjoy games in a way that they never have before. We anticipate it being one of the most sought after fan areas due to its atmosphere and amenities.
“This is just one piece of our overall strategy of improving game day for our fans, and our Fan Council agreed that this concept would be a hit with season ticket holders looking for a new experience on game day. We will continue to implement new initiatives and concepts moving forward. Miner Nation should be excited about what’s to come,” Senter added.
Located at field level behind the North End Zone, UTEP officials say the Party Patio will provide an “exclusive and fun-filled experience like never before.” The Miners will kick off the 2019 season at home against Houston Baptist on August 31 at 6 p.m
Amenities at the Party Patio include two full-service bars offering draft beer, mixed drinks, wine, Pepsi products, select food/concessions offerings, premium game day beverages including draft beers from MillerCoors and Deadbeach Brewery and breathtaking views of the field and stadium.
The Party Patio will open 90 minutes prior to kickoff for each of the Miners’ six home games and close at the end of the game.
Access to the Party Patio is $99 per patron with the purchase of a season ticket. To purchase a Party Patio pass, fans can call (915) 747-6150, visit the ticket website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
