Opening day for GoDaddy.com Bowl ticket sales

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The ASU Central Box Office opened ticket sales for the 2013 GoDaddy.com Bowl at 8:30 a.m. Monday morning.

The ASU Red Wolves accepted an invitation Sunday to play in the GoDaddy.com Bowl on Sunday, Jan. 6, 2013.  The team is scheduled to face Kent State with an 8 p.m. (CT) opening kickoff at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama. 

Arkansas State fan Vance Sales was among the 10,000 supporters who traveled to the 2012 GoDaddy.com Bowl. He predicts the number of ASU supporters who go to Mobile for the 2013 GoDaddy.com Bowl will surpass the 2012 total.

"I bought nine tickets today. I bought seven for my relatives, and two for a couple of fellahs over in Osceola," he said. "I bet it'll be a larger group (in 2013)."

Associate Athletic Director for External Operations and Red Wolf Club Director Doug Doggett said first day ticket sales at the ASU Central Box Office for the 2012 game totaled 990, and first day ticket sales for the 2013 game are estimated to total more than 2,000.

"As soon as we learned that we were going to the GoDaddy.com Bowl, tickets went on sale online. We had a lot of people online immediately, purchasing tickets early this morning. As soon as the box office opened we had a line. People calling in. The phones have been ringing off the hook all morning long," he said.

Doggett hopes ticket sales will set a new attendance record for the GoDaddy.com Bowl.

"The Bowl Committee allots us 7,000 tickets, but we've already told them we want to break the record. (We want the) most tickets ever sold to the GoDaddy.com Bowl."

Doggett encourages people to buy their game tickets from ASU so as to benefit the University.

"It's the only way to guarantee seats in the ASU section, and that money helps our program. It comes back to Arkansas State."
