EL PASO, Texas – The Sun Bowl Association and the YMCA of El Paso have teamed up to give football fans around the country the chance to win a $1,500 Sun Bowl Game Package for the Hyundai Sun Bowl by participating in the YMCA Hyundai Sun Bowl Challenge.
The contest starts this week as the 2015 college football season opens up. Contestants will attempt to predict the winners of 10 predetermined Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and PAC-12 games, the Hyundai Sun Bowl conference affiliates, each week. The first set of games for contestants to predict are set for Saturday, Sept. 5.
“The YMCA has always enjoyed being a part of the events that the Sun Bowl Association puts on,” said Bill Coon, CEO/President of the El Paso YMCA. “The community has been very generous to us and other organizations such as ours, so we are more than happy to partner with the Sun Bowl Association to do this.”
With each game valued at one point, a weekly winner will be determined by the individual who accumulates the most points. In addition, contestants will be asked to estimate the total points scored by both teams of a predetermined game. In case of a tiebreaker, the contestant with the most accurate prediction of total points scored will be the weekly winner.
“Fans from around the country had a great time with this promotion last year,” said Sun Bowl Association Executive Director Bernie Olivas. “We want to continue to make the college football experience a fun and exciting experience so we decided to team up with the YMCA of El Paso to do this. We would like to thank the YMCA of El Paso for helping the Sun Bowl Association with this contest.”
The 13 weekly winners will win two 2015 Hyundai Sun Bowl tickets, one month free adult membership to the YMCA of El Paso and will automatically advance to “Championship Week” in which they will once again predict the winners of each college football conference championship game. The contestant with the most points will two Captain’s Club level tickets to the 2015 Hyundai Sun Bowl, two VIP Pre-game tent party tickets, one parking pass with a one year family membership to the YMCA of El Paso.
EL PASO, Texas – Tickets for the 82nd Annual Hyundai Sun Bowl are now on sale and fans have many options for purchase.

Customers can call the Sun Bowl Association office (915-533-4416) and are also invited to stop by the Sun Bowl Association office that is located at 4150 Pinnacle Street, Suite 100 in El Paso to purchase tickets.
The Hyundai Sun Bowl also works with Ticket master and fans can buy tickets by going to their website at www.TicketMaster.com or by calling the Ticket master toll free line at 800-745-3000.

Fans may also want to be a part of one of our two programs to help others attend the 82nd Annual Sun Bowl. The Sun Bowl Association has brought in the “Salute a Soldier Program” and “Take a Child to the Game Program.”
With the “Salute a Soldier Program” fans and companies have the chance to give a Fort Bliss soldier a memory that will last a lifetime. As a sponsor you will give a soldier the opportunity to attend the game while your company will not only benefit out of goodwill, but will also be given recognition at the game.
If a fan or company would prefer to take part in the “Take a Child to the Game Program” that person or company gives a child the opportunity to attend the game, which would make for a great Christmas gift as the game falls on the day after Christmas. Again, anyone who takes part in this program will not only benefit out of goodwill but will also be given recognition at the game. The goal is to send 3,000 children to the game and give them an experience that will last a lifetime. The Sun Bowl Association can provide a list of youth organizations that your company may choose from, if you do not already have a personal favorite you are connected to in the community.
Contact the Sun Bowl Association ticket or marketing office for details on the two programs.
The game features select teams from the ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference) and the Pac-12. In last year’s Hyundai Sun Bowl fans saw Arizona State defeat Duke 34-31 in a game that had an explosion of excitement from start to finish.
