Rest of the fans get crack at remaining UH tickets
The University of Hawaii will put its remaining Allstate Sugar Bowl tickets on sale to the general public tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Stan Sheriff Center Box Office.
About 200 tickets will be available to the public, said John McNamara, associate athletic director for external affairs. An exact figure was not available yesterday because the ticket office was still compiling the number of sales to season ticket holders, McNamara said.
About 1,000 extra tickets were made available to season ticket holders Tuesday after UH released them from its existing allotment. Another 1,500 extra tickets were provided earlier by the Sugar Bowl, and 250 tickets were provided by the Western Athletic Conference and other sources.
Tickets for the general public will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be a maximum of six tickets per person while supplies last, according to UH officials. No orders will be taken by phone or online. A Hawaii driver's license is required to purchase tickets.
"We want to ensure that the remaining tickets are available to Hawaii fans," UH athletic director Herman Frazier said in a news release. "Now that we have satisfied the requests from our football season ticket holders, we want to make tickets available to other UH fans that have not had the chance to purchase tickets at face value."
Ticket costs range from $125 to $145. The UH Ticket Office's regular hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays. The office will be closed on Christmas Day.
