ORLANDO, FLORIDA – UCF Athletics received more than 20,000 ticket requests for the Knights’ Dec. 23 postseason assignment against Florida in the Union Home Mortgage Gasparilla Bowl to be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

Kickoff set for 7 p.m. ET on ESPN. All those requests came within the first 48 hours following the bowl announcement and prior to the 5 p.m. Tuesday priority deadline.

Here are details on 2021 Gasparilla Bowl tickets:

All tickets requested by Shareholders Society members and season-ticket members will be fulfilled through the UCF allotment in the lower levels of Raymond James Stadium (100-level and 200-level sections).

Seating locations will be based on priority points. E-mails will be sent Saturday with seating locations.

■ UCF worked with the Gasparilla Bowl to secure an additional allotment of 300-level seats (on the UCF side of the stadium) for individuals who requested tickets through UCF but did not meet the priority point cutoff.

Those fans will receive an e-mail Saturday at 9 a.m. ET with a link and code to purchase tickets directly through the bowl. Those tickets are available first-come, first served.

■ UCF sold its initial allotment of student tickets. Students whose orders were not fulfilled will receive an e-mail at 9 a.m. ET Saturday to order exclusive student tickets directly through the bowl.

Seating locations were allocated by priority points in the following order:
■ 2021 Shareholders Society members (ranked in priority point order)
■ 2021 Football season-ticket members (ranked in priority point order)
■ 2021 ChargeOn Fund donors who are not football season-ticket members (ranked in priority point order)
■ General public (ranked in order by request date/time)

“We’re thrilled to be able to meet the huge demand from our Shareholders Society and season-ticket members, as well as supply a link for other UCF fans who requested tickets within our allotment,” said Terry Mohajir, UCF vice president and director of athletics.

“As we transition to Big 12 Conference play in the coming seasons, we expect increased demand for season tickets, away game tickets, and post-season tickets, including bowl games, conference tournaments and NCAA Tournament appearances.”

“We appreciate the overwhelming response from Knight Nation for our bowl game this year—it’s a tribute to our growing and loyal fan base. Your support allows us to continue to dream big and provide the best services for our student-athletes.”

“It’s certainly accurate to say that interest and ticket demand overall have been very strong this year. UCF fans have a history of showing up in big ways for bowl games, especially considering our most recent showings in Atlanta (Peach Bowl), twice in Glendale (Fiesta Bowl) and every opportunity in Tampa.”
