The Sun Bowl Association is proud to unveil a special anniversary logo to commemorate the 80th edition of the Hyundai Sun Bowl game.
The Hyundai Sun Bowl, the second oldest bowl game behind the Rose Bowl, was first played on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 1935, at El Paso High School’s Jones Stadium. This year’s game will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 31 at Sun Bowl Stadium.
“On behalf of the Sun Bowl Association, we would like to thank the city of El Paso for its continuous support of the bowl game during the past eight decades,” said Sun Bowl Association Executive Director Bernie Olivas.
“We take pride in the history and tradition that the Hyundai Sun Bowl game has built, not only in our community, but in the world of college football. We’ll be using this commemorative logo throughout the year to remind our fans of one of the treasures of the Southwest.”
In addition to celebrating the 80th anniversary of the football game, the Sun Bowl Association has a special treat for a select number of fans that attend this year’s game. On December 31 ticket buyers will have a chance to win one of 80 gifts donated by local and national businesses on December 31.
“We were looking for a way to reward our fans that support us when buying a ticket to our game,” Olivas said. “The partnerships we’ve been able to build with businesses in and out of El Paso throughout the years are tremendous. They’re excited to help us celebrate an important milestone of our game with their donation.”
Every ticket purchased will be entered to win one of the 80 gifts to be given away during the game.
The 2013 game will mark 46th consecutive broadcast on CBS. The game features selections from the ACC and Pac-12 conferences.
Tickets for the 2013 Hyundai Sun Bowl are $17, $22, $32, $42, $52 and $62 and will go on sale at a later date.
