EL PASO, Texas - Less than 10,000 tickets remain for the UTEP football team’s season opener against North Texas on Aug. 27 at 7 pm. 

UTEP is closing in on selling out a game in the Sun Bowl for the first time since 2008. 

The current stadium capacity is 45,971.

Fans have been able to purchase both UTEP football season tickets and tickets to the North Texas game for two months. 

But on Monday (Aug. 1), single-game tickets to all six of UTEP’s home games will be available for the first time. 

The Miners will also host I-10 rival NM State (Sept. 10, 7 pm), perennial national power Boise State (Sept. 23, 7 pm), Florida Atlantic (Oct. 22, 2 pm), Middle Tennessee (Oct. 29, 7 pm) and FIU (Nov. 19, 2 pm) this fall.

“It’s exciting for UTEP Football to be a hot ticket again,” UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter said.  “We feel like we have a great product and a great entertainment value.  We’re looking forward to building on our success from last season with the majority of the players returning from a seven-win team.”

“We are so grateful to the 915 community and Miner Nation for getting on board with the Sun Bowl Sellout initiative,” UTEP football coach Dana Dimel said.  “Our dream of playing before a packed house on Aug. 27 is becoming a reality.  If you haven’t purchased your tickets to the game, time is running out!  We are hard at work preparing for the 2022 season and can’t wait to take the field in less than a month.”

Season Tickets Start at Just $65
