AT&T COTTON BOWL USHERS IN NEW COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF ERA WITH A SELL OUT!
ARLINGTON, August 13, 2014 — The AT&T Cotton Bowl announced today that the 79th Classic scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 1, 2015 at AT&T Stadium is officially sold out.
The 2015 AT&T Cotton Bowl marks the sixth year the Classic has been played in AT&T Stadium which has generated four of the top five crowds in the game’s history. Since the game’s move in 2010, the Classic has sold out each year in AT&T Stadium.
“You can sense the excitement from our passionate fan base,” Amy Scott, VP of Ticket Sales & Services said. “Ever since the Cotton Bowl was announced as a member of the ‘New Year’s Six’ as part of the College Football Playoff, we’ve been inundated with emails and calls from eager season-ticket holders and those that want on our wait list.”
The 2015 Classic returns to its traditional spot on New Year’s Day and is the lead-in to the Rose Bowl presented by Northwestern Mutual and Allstate Sugar Bowl, the two College Football Playoff semifinals this season. The Classic will be one of the semifinal sites in 2015-16.
The AT&T Cotton Bowl is making the move to ESPN for the national telecast. The teams will be announced by the new College Football Playoff Selection Committee on Sunday, Dec. 7.
“We take great pride knowing that North Texas has the most enthusiastic college football fans in the country,” Dan Novakov, Chairman of the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic said. “You combine a world-class facility like AT&T Stadium with great college football teams and tremendous local support, and it’s a recipe for great success.”
Fans still interested in attending the 79th Classic can place their names on a waiting list for AT&T Stadium suites. A limited number of suites will be made available. For more information on suites and the 2015 AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, please visit www.attcottonbowl.com.
