TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State Ticket Office announced plans for
a student ticket lottery beginning next week for the 1,600 sugar bowl
tickets available to FSU students.
Any Florida State student who wishes to enter the lottery must bring a
valid student ID card to the Howser Stadium (baseball) ticket booth on
Monday, Dec. 6, or Tuesday, Dec. 7, between 9:00-4:30. If the number of
students signing up to buy a ticket exceeds the quantity, a lottery will be
conducted on Tuesday night and the random students selected to buy a ticket
will be posted on Wednesday at the ticket booth. Selected students will
have Wednesday or Thursday to buy the ticket and they must present the
winning lottery card at that time. If all tickets are not purchased by
lottery selections, those students who registered to participate in the
lottery and have their lottery card may purchase a ticket beginning on
Friday (Dec. 10) at 9:00 a.m.
The ticket office also announced that demand for Sugar Bowl tickets among
qualifying Seminole Booster members is so high that once again he
anticipates that none of FSU’s allotment of bowl tickets will be available
for sale to the general public.
