UCF to #TakeoverTampaBay for the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl against NC State.

UCF has recently enjoyed memorable trips to Arizona and Ireland, and for the 2014 postseason fans will not have to travel far to support the Knights as they will be taking over the Bay Area once again for the 2014 Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl where it will face North Carolina State on Friday, Dec. 26, at 8 p.m. on ESPN.


Benefits ordering through UCF:
The number of tickets UCF pre-sells for a bowl game can help the athletic department present the best possible bowl scenario for the Knights. It is critical that UCF fans purchase bowl game tickets from, as institutional ticket purchases can impact future bowl opportunities. Here are a few reasons to order through UCF:

  • Strengthen UCF's candidacy for major bowls selection, now and into future. By waiting to get tickets through secondary websites, you could impede UCF's profile and standing.
  • Thousands of good tickets are available now! Get the best seats among multiple levels with fair prices.
  • Know where you are sitting without risking secondary markets. Commit during the presale window and learn your seat location after the bowl announcement.
  • Everyone who orders bowl tickets through UCF will receive a commemorative print celebrating UCF's 'First Decade of Bowling' (limit one gift per account).

How bowl tickets are assigned:
Bowl game seating will be allocated by GKC priority points. Ticket orders from fans who are not members of the GKC will be allocated in the order that they are received after all pre-sale priority point orders have been assigned.

  • Seat locations for tickets purchased after the presale order deadline (Dec. 9th) will be assigned first come, first served.
  • GKC priority points are accumulated through donations and season ticket history. Priority Points and annual giving are used to determine ticket locations that will be assigned in each ticket level.
