BLACKSBURG - The Virginia Tech Athletics Department announced today that Bronze Athletic Fund club members and above, who pre-ordered tickets for the Sugar Bowl, will receive game tickets. In addition, approximately 40 percent of Orange and Maroon club members will also receive game tickets.

The Virginia Tech Athletics Department received an allotment of 15,000 tickets for its Jan. 3 game against Auburn in the New Orleans Superdome.

Due to the high demand for tickets to the Bowl Championship Series game, the Department was unable to fill all ticket requests made by its Athletic Fund members and its football season ticket holders. The Ticket Office received pre-order requests for approximately 22,000 tickets.

The Tech Ticket Office will mail an official notice on Monday, Dec. 13 to those not receiving bowl tickets indicating that it was unable to fulfill their Sugar Bowl ticket request.

The Tech Ticket Office expects to ship Sugar Bowl tickets next week.

Tech also received approximately 7,000 student bowl ticket entries for its student ticket allotment. An electronic process distributed 3,000 tickets to Virginia Tech students placing orders today.

Students with a confirmed ticket order may pick-up their Sugar Bowl ticket at the Cassell Coliseum Ticket Office beginning Monday, Dec. 13 through Wednesday, Dec. 15 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The Tech Ticket Office has no other tickets available for the Sugar Bowl game.
