NASHVILLE - Vanderbilt athletic officials announced Friday afternoon that the university has sold out its initial allotment of 12,000 tickets, along with its additionally requested lower level and club level seats, to the 2012 Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl.
The school had made arrangements with bowl officials to procure additional club and lower level tickets and all of those premium tickets are now exhausted. Commodore fans will now be able to purchase upper level (300 Level) tickets through the Vanderbilt Ticket Office - those tickets will be priced at $45. The upper level tickets will be on the east side of the stadium which is the Vanderbilt sideline.
"Our fans have done a tremendous job in selling out our entire initial allotment along with our additional requests in just five days. It's a clear signal that the Vanderbilt community and college football fans in this market are very excited about Commodore football," Vanderbilt director of sales and marketing Steve Walsh said. "I am very pleased to announce that we have worked with bowl officials to allow us to begin selling upper level tickets through the Vanderbilt Ticket Office so our supporters can be assured of sitting in black and gold sections of LP Field."
Fans who pre-ordered Music City Bowl tickets prior to Sunday's bowl announcement will be charged for the balance of their transaction at the time that seating assignments are processed. That first round of seating assignments will take place over the weekend with the initial mailing of tickets to take place early next week.
Kickoff for the 2012 Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, which pits the Commodores against the North Carolina State Wolfpack, is scheduled for 11 a.m. CT on Dec. 31. For more information on the game, including tickets, visit Vanderbilt Bowl Central at vanderbilt.edu/bowl.
