From Miami Today News:

"Most tickets are sold locally prior to the teams being announced," said Larry Wahl, Orange Bowl Committee vice president of communications and community outreach since 2007. "We are well ahead of last year in sales, in all areas of the stadium, with tickets ranging in price from $75 to $250."

WVU and Orange Bowl donors have teamed up to buy tickets for active and retired military veterans.

"So far we have had 3,002 tickets donated from West Virginia and private donors to the Orange Bowl," said founder and CMO Dwayne Somers.

Mr. Somers said the Veteran Ticket Foundation began seeking tickets through bowl games, then realized it would be easier to go directly through the schools.

Since its creation four years ago, The Veteran Ticket Foundation has been able to offer 293,816 tickets to active and retired military veterans. Mr. Somers said these tickets include sporting events, concerts and other activities.

"It is rather amazing what we have done in four years," Mr. Somers said. "We have been extremely successful in getting donations."
