UH Gets More Sugar Bowl Tickets

By Mari-Ela David

UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII (KHNL) -- Warrior fans are trying to spend some of their green on tickets to the big game, and on Tuesday, the University of Hawaii says it got more tickets on top of the 1500 additional tickets Sugar Bowl officials have already sent.

UH officials have come up with 200 more tickets that will go to donors who have supported Hawaii Athletics.

As for the 1500 extra tickets Sugar Bowl officials gave, UH Athletics Director Herman Frazier says there's enough to cover most, if not all season ticket holders on a waiting list.

The mad scramble for tickets began when University leaders only took 13,500 tickets out of the 17,500 they could have gotten, because they didn't think they could sell them all.

Now, UH officials are trying to make up for it.

"We have received some of them from the Sugar Bowl itself. We have also received some from the Western Athletic Conference. We have also received some from the Orange Bowl and other friends that we have in the sports world who know about our demand and they've all stepped up to be able to accommodate us thus far," said Frazier.

For Warrior fans who don't have season tickets, there's an online ticket marketplace called Stub Hub.

"Sometimes, finding tickets from the school can be a challenge. Also, locating them at the actual Bowl game can be difficult so you can literally log onto the internet, go to www.stubhub.com, register and shop from over 1200 tickets listed for this game," said Sean Pate, Head of Communications for Stub Hub.

People who can't make it to a game, can sell their tickets through the website.

As of Tuesday night, the cheapest Sugar Bowl tickets were going for $100 each.

Anyone can buy or sell through Stub Hub.

UH may have even more tickets up for grabs as well later on in the week. There's a possibility that season ticket holders on the waiting list may have already gotten tickets elsewhere.

If so, then that would free up some of the 1500 tickets reserved for them. If that's the case, Frazier says they'll decide on Friday what to do with the leftover tickets.
