Return to Press Releases TICKETS ON SALE FOR 2012 GODADDY.COM BOWL 11/11/2011
MOBILE, AL- (Nov. 11, 2011) GoDaddy.com Bowl representatives announced today that tickets will go on sale Monday, November 14th for the 13th Annual GoDaddy.com Bowl Game. Go Daddy, the world's largest Web hosting provider1 and top domain name registrar and provider of net-new SSL Certificates, is sponsoring the college football bowl game for a second consecutive year.
"We couldn't have asked for a better game last year for our first-ever GoDaddy.com Bowl," said Go Daddy CEO and Founder Bob Parsons, referring to how the Miami RedHawks made NCAA Division I history by coming off a double-digit losing season to a double-digit winning season with a victory in the GoDaddy.com Bowl. "There's just about nothing America loves more than a dramatic 'comeback.' We're excited to see what story unfolds at the 2012 GoDaddy.com Bowl."
“We’re ready for another sell-out at this year’s bowl game. Mobile has supported the game for the 12th straight year and we don’t expect anything less for the 2012 game. As usual, we’re happy to have some great events and celebrities. It’s something Mobile has come to expect from us and something we’re proud to be doing,” said Director of Ticket Sales, Kelley Wright.
From the beginning, the GoDaddy.com Bowl has provided Mobile with some of the biggest names in sports. People like Danica Patrick, Terry Bradshaw, Boomer Esiason, Joe Theismann, Jeff Gordon, Pete Rose, Jake Peavy, Lee Corso, Mike Ditka, and Bobby Bowden have all been a part of the GoDaddy.com Bowl game tradition.
As in the past, the 2012 GoDaddy.com Bowl game events include an exciting list of activities. Bowl Week will officially kickoff on Wednesday, Jan. 4, at 7 p.m. CST, at the Great Southern Wood Team Welcome Reception at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. Events continue through the week including the popular GoDaddy.com Bowl Mayor’s Luncheon on Friday, Jan. 6, at 12:00 p.m. The Greer’s /Press-Register Mardi Gras Parade, Press-Register Pep Rally, Spectronics Fireworks Show, and Press-Register Street Party will be held Saturday night beginning at 6:30 p.m. The week concludes with the GoDaddy.com Bowl Game on Sunday, Jan. 8, at 8:00 p.m.
“Over the past 12 years, we’ve developed a reputation as a first class event. The teams that visit Mobile to play in the GoDaddy.com Bowl game all want to be invited back. The people in Mobile always welcome them with open arms and make them feel at home while they are here. Even teams that haven’t been here before want to come because they’ve heard how great it is here. It’s become something that everyone wants to be part of,” said GoDaddy.com Bowl Executive Director Frank Modarelli.
Go Daddy is also giving back to the community by providing 3000 tickets to the GoDaddy.com Bowl Kids Zone – a tailgate event venue developed to provide area non-profit and charity organizations for children the opportunity to have a college bowl experience. The children and their families are given passes to the Kids Zone section inside the stadium for the GoDaddy.com Bowl game.
Tickets remain competitively priced with reserved seating for $15 in the end zones and $45 along the sidelines. The 2012 GoDaddy.com Bowl is scheduled for 8 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 8,
at Ladd-Peebles Stadium and will be aired nationally on ESPN. The GoDaddy.com Bowl will announce the two participating teams from the Mid-American Conference and the Sun Belt Conference in early December.
“Our bowl game, Mobile’s bowl game, has produced some pretty exciting games over the last 12 years. Byron Leftwich throwing for 576 yards in the 2001 game with Marshall and East Carolina is a great example. Marshall had a fantastic comeback and a 64-61 double overtime victory. Who can forget that one?”, said Julie Jeter, Director of Marketing and Media Relations. “It’s still considered one of the most memorable games of the last 25 years. That’s what we work so hard to bring to Mobile every year.”
Tickets can be purchased at the GoDaddy.com Bowl office at (251) 635-0011 or by contacting Cape Travel (251) 344-2789 located at 3821 Airport Blvd. For more information about Bowl Week events please visit us online at www.GoDaddyBowl.com.
