Tickets are available to all season tickets holders. The first guarantee of tickets is based on the customer donation level within the Sun Angel Foundation. After these guaranteed orders have been filled, all remaining ticket holders will be allocated tickets based on a lottery system.
Ticket prices are $44 for the general public and $25 for ASU students. The Intercollegiate Athletic Department is subsidizing $19 of the $44 ticket for students to encourage students to purchase tickets to the game.
'We will pay for $19 of the total $44 cost of a ticket to enable our students to purchase an affordable ticket to the Holiday Bowl game,' says Smith. 'We want to give our students every opportunity to enjoy the game in person in sunny San Diego.'
The ticket office will extend its hours until 6:00 p.m. during the weeks of December 9-13 and 16-20 until 6:00 p.m. to accommodate patrons.
