Texas Tech fans have blown through the initial allotment of tickets for the postseason, but that doesn't mean tickets don't exist for those who'd like to join the Red Raiders at their bowl destination. Texas Tech will continue taking bowl ticket orders Wednesday through Friday, but only from Red Raider Club members or persons wanting to become Red Raider Club members.
"We set a record for pre-orders and have sold out of the initial allotment guaranteed by the BCS and Cotton bowls," Texas Tech Associate AD/Ticket Operations Dave Welsh said. "However, we are able to request more tickets; therefore, allowing us to continue filling orders as they come in. This is a testament to our fans and the excitement that is carrying over from the season. They have been there for us and done a tremendous job of supporting Texas Tech this season."
Bowl ticket orders for the remainder of the week are for those Red Raider Club members that did not submit a pre-order form and fans that are not yet members. To purchase tickets for the bowl game, buyers are required to become members of the Red Raider Club at the $150 level and above. Fans can order up to 10 tickets. Additionally, seating will be based on a priority points system - the higher level the membership, the more points awarded.
Fans can order tickets for any or all of the postseason bowl opportunities and will only be charged for the game Texas Tech is selected to participate. The bowl destination will be revealed Sunday afternoon through a press release and at www.texastech.com. This week's sales will most likely be the final opportunity for fans to purchase tickets to Texas Tech's bowl game; excluding Texas Tech students, who will receive an opportunity to purchase tickets after the announcement.
Texas Tech Student Red Raider Club (SRRC) members can purchase up to two tickets in person for the bowl game, beginning Wed., Dec. 10. If student tickets remain after the SRRC on-sale date, those remaining tickets (if available) will go on sale to Texas Tech students Thu., Dec. 11. For Student Red Raider Club membership information, contact the RRC at (806) 742-1196 or add the membership fee of $25 to your order Wednesday.
