Ticket Information for Allstate Sugar Bowl/College Football Playoff Semifinal park
Ticket information for the 2018 Allstate Sugar Bowl, which will double as a College Football Playoff Semifinal, on January 1, 2018, will be available later this year. Fans interested in getting advance notice of on-sale dates as well as opportunities for exclusive early offers to purchase tickets, need to sign up for official Allstate Sugar Bowl Ticket Mailing List.
The upcoming Allstate Sugar Bowl will mark the second time the Sugar Bowl has hosted a Playoff Semifinal game – the first time was a hugely successful match-up between Alabama and Ohio State in the 2015 Allstate Sugar Bowl. Ohio State won the game 42-35 and went on to claim the national championship, becoming the 27th national champion to be hosted by the Sugar Bowl.
The match-up for the Allstate Sugar Bowl will be determined by the College Football Playoff Selection Committee. The committee will rank the top teams in the country with the top four in the final ranking (to be released Sunday, December 3) being paired up in the Playoff Semifinals. The Rose Bowl will host the other semifinal game.
The Allstate Sugar Bowl will also continue its prominent position in the community by hosting and sponsoring over 50 amateur sporting events in 2017. Included in those events are every Louisiana High School Athletic Association state championship; the Crescent City Classic, a nationally-recognized road race featuring over 20,000 participants; the Manning Award, which honors college football’s top quarterback; three basketball tournaments; two volleyball tournaments; two soccer sponsorships; and events in baseball, bowling, cross country, golf, lacrosse, sailing, tennis and track and field.
The Sugar Bowl Committee was founded as the New Orleans Mid-Winter Sports Association in 1934 for the purpose of promoting amateur sporting events that would stimulate tourism and have a positive economic effect on the New Orleans metropolitan area. Over the last decade, the Sugar Bowl has had an economic impact of over $2.5 billion for the city and state.
