    Fiesta Bowl Tickets

    Tickets formally went on sale for Kansas State’s third appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, with expectations that more than 40,000 Wildcat fans would probably be heading to Phoenix for the Jan. 3 game against Oregon.
    The Wildcats were formally invited Sunday night, one day after clinching the Big 12 conference co-championship with a 42-24 victory over Texas.


    Athletic Department officials indicated that more than 21,000 advance ticket applications had been received since the Wildcats became bowl-eligible. They said those applications would be processed through the Fiesta Bowl, and added that all fans who ordered tickets through the K-State Ticket Office before the Nov. 30 pre-order deadline would receive their ticket quantity. Those who had not yet purchased tickets were being urged to do so through the Fiesta Bowl by visiting http://www.fiestabowl.org or calling (800) 635-5748.


    Fiesta Bowl representatives said Monday that tickets for the game, to be played at the 73,000 seat capacity University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, are available but selling fast.


    Fans interested in travel packages were being encouraged to call the K-State Alumni Association’s bowl hotline at 866-373-7379. Travel options include air transportation and hotel, as well as land-only packages.

    Pricing options began at $629 for two-night land only packages, and at $1,600 for three-night air packages, with neither of those options including the actual game ticket. They indicated that those needed to be purchased through the Fiesta Bowl.


    K-State sent 45,000 fans to the 1997 Fiesta Bowl victory over Syracuse, a number that remains the largest college fan group ever to cross state lines to see a game. In 2003, an estimated 40,000 Wildcat fans purchased tickets to see the loss to Ohio State.

    Just to show that some posters on here are correct. People will spend a lot of money to get out of Kansas, especially, in the winter, even if for just a few days.

    Re: Fiesta Bowl Tickets

    I think it means that we better not come down to having to beat out KSU for a future bowl game based on how well fans travel...

    I have no doubt that our turn out for a BCS game would be comparable. Hopefully one day I can test this theory.

    I think not only comparable, but I say we beat that number. We took 30K to the first insight bowl. After only a 25 year drought. You don't think nearly every cyclone fan worth their salt wouldn't be looking to go to that game? Our fan and alumni association bases have grown considerably since then, and season tix may have doubled the 1999 figure by the time we go to a BCS Bowl. (read next year ;^))

    I thinke we could realistically expect to beat that number.

    That's an impressive turnout. I respect that.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
