Ducks Make Extra Bowl Tickets Available Monday
Dec. 7, 2001
EUGENE - With a strong initial demand for a likely appearance in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, University of Oregon athletic director Bill Moos announced Friday that extra tickets will be made available to season-ticket holders who made initial orders and wanted additional seats, and also the general public, starting Monday, Dec. 10, at 9 a.m.
After receiving an original allotment of 15,000 tickets, the Duck ticket office acquired an extra 3,000 tickets for the January 1st game in Tempe, Ariz., set for a 3 p.m. start at Sun Devil Stadium. All tickets for the game are on a reserved seat basis and cost $75, plus a $10 handling fee.
NOTE: All previous applicants for a previously-arranged Duck ticket-office lottery for bowl tickets are now assured of their order of two or less tickets per order, and don't need to contact the Duck ticket office Monday morning. Monday's extension is only for new ticket purchases by the general public, or previous requests beyond the original two-ticket limit.
'We've already had a great demand for Fiesta Bowl tickets, so we're pleased to acquire more tickets and ensure an even bigger turnout of Duck Fans,' Oregon athletic director Bill Moos said. 'The fan support has been tremendous all year, and this is a great way for Duck Fans to celebrate an outstanding season and the team's Pac-10 championship.'
Starting Monday, the general public can order tickets from the Duck Ticket office over the phone at 541-346-4461 (long distance 1-800-WEBFOOT), or in person at the Casanova Center Athletic Ticket Office.
Duck alumni and fans interested in UO Alumni Association-related travel, hotel packages and pre-game festivities can call 541-346-8636 or visit their web site (http://alumni.uoregon.edu).
Oregon's 10th postseason bowl appearance in 13 seasons marks its first winter appearance in Arizona and likely matches the No. 3-ranked Ducks against the Big 12 Conference Champion, unless either qualifies for the national championship game. The University of Colorado currently owns the Big 12 slot and is ranked No. 4 nationally.
Regular season home support for the Ducks at Autzen Stadium stood at an all-time high of 275,556, as the Ducks went 5-1 and upped its home win streak to a nationally-leading 23 games in October. Oregon's current AP ranking is its highest in school history and it also recorded its first back-to-back Pac-10 Conference championships.
