Ticket Renewal Mailout Begins for 2011 I-Bowl

Shreveport, La. – The ticket renewal mailout has begun for the 2011 AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl and all ticket holders should receive their renewal forms within the next two weeks.
 
Ticket renewal forms are in the mail and started going out on March 17. Everyone who purchased tickets to last year’s AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl will receive a ticket renewal form. Anyone who does not receive their renewal invoice should contact the bowl office at 318.221.0712 or 888.414.2695 (BOWL). New ticket orders can also be placed by calling the bowl office. Seat locations on all new orders will be assigned once the renewal deadline has passed.
 
The deadline for payment on all renewals is July 1, 2011. The date and time for the 2011 AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl is expected to be announced soon. The game will be played at Independence Stadium and will be televised nationally by ESPN.
 
 
New to all ticket buyers in 2011 is the “I-Bowl Loyalty Card”. If fans renew tickets or purchase new tickets prior to the July 1 renewal deadline they will receive one Loyalty Card for each ticket they purchase. The “I-Bowl Loyalty Card” will save fans money at participating businesses that are “Loyalty Partners” such as Cascio’s Market Bistro, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hilton Shreveport, Johnny’s Catfish and Seafood, The Dough Basket and Creative Cakes and many more. New “Loyalty Partners” will be added throughout the year as well.

The “Johnny’s Catfish and Seafood Family Fun Pack” is a ticket package which includes four south end zone tickets, four hot dogs, four soft drinks, and a Blue Lot parking pass all for only $175. The ticket package also includes a “Johnny’s Catfish Family Pack”, a $20 value. This saves fans more than $40 off of the regular price.
 
The Touchdown Club is a ticket package specially designed for larger groups. This package includes 10 south end zone tickets, and 10 shuttle tickets for $380, which saves fans $50 off the normal price.
 
The Patriot Pack and the Bowl Backer include 20 seats in the south end zone and sidelines respectively plus shuttle tickets and recognition at the game for your business or large group. Stay tuned for more information on ticket packages throughout the year.
