ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (November 5, 2015) – Tickets for the 2015 St. Petersburg Bowl will go on sale Monday, Nov. 9 and start as low as just $40. Tickets can be ordered through Ticketmaster or by phone at 1.800.745.3000. The eighth edition of the bowl game, which is owned and operated by ESPN Events, a division of ESPN, will feature an American Athletic Conference team against a representative from Conference USA at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Saturday, Dec. 26, at 11 a.m. ET on ESPN.
“We are looking forward to having a fantastic matchup again this year as our conference affiliates have had multiple teams enjoying a terrific first two months of the season,” said Brett Dulaney, executive director, St. Petersburg Bowl. “Last year’s game with NC State and UCF was a down-to-wire nail biter and we heard feedback from many first-time attendees about the great experience they had at The Trop.”
The St. Petersburg Bowl has been host to many exciting games over the previous seven years and has showcased more than 130 players that have been drafted or signed with NFL teams. Forty-eight (48) of those players were on NFL rosters on opening day this year. Many coveted fantasy football players are on this list including QB Blake Bortles (Jaguars), WR T.Y. Hilton (Colts), RB Latavius Murray (Raiders) and WR Mohamed Sanu (Bengals).
Tropicana Field’s setup has enabled the bowl game to offer a one-of-a-kind on-field hospitality village, The Party Deck. This is the only on-field hospitality village in pro or college football where fans can sit right behind the team bench and hear all of the hard-hitting action. In addition, a ticket to this area includes all the food and beverages any fan would want. The Party Deck has sold out each year, so you’ll want to reserve your Party Deck tickets early. Individual and group tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster or by phone at 1.800.745.3000. For Hospitality Packages, contact the Bowl Office at 727.290.9865.
While the game is the headliner event, the St. Petersburg Bowl activities start a few days prior. This year the teams, their alumni and students will start arriving in St. Petersburg on Tuesday, Dec., 22 for the numerous bowl-related festivities leading up to kick-off. These events, which are free and open to the public, include the Beach Bash, Battle of the Bands, Bowl Block Party and Fan Tailgate Extravaganza.
