13th straight sellout for Chick-fil-A Bowl

Virginia Tech, Tennessee will play before packed house at Ga. Dome Dec. 31

The Chick-fil-A Bowl between Virginia Tech and Tennessee is sold out, officials announced Wednesday.

The game, to be held Dec. 31 at the Georgia Dome, has sold out for 13th straight years, the third-longest capacity crowd streak in the country behind the Rose and Fiesta Bowls.

Each school purchased their full ticket allotments with the remaining tickets going to local and regional buyers.

“We really feel very fortunate to have a match-up of this caliber with two great universities and fan bases that express this level of support, even in a challenging economy,” Gary Stokan, Chick-fil-A Bowl president and CEO, said in a statement. “We’re thankful for the great partnerships we have with the ACC and SEC and their member schools and the outstanding support we get each year from local Atlanta fans who continue to embrace us.”
