Extended “after camp” is offered until 6 p.m. Registration is available online.” – AZ Central

Phoenix SunsJanuary 2nd

Phoenix Suns vs. Philadelphia 76ers (7pm MST)

Take in a Suns game and get to see an NBA stadium. While it’s the 76ers and Suns, not exactly the most exciting matchup, it’s still a chance to take in a new venue and see how Oregon’s Matt Knight Arena stands up.

You can order tickets on StubHub, TicketCity or another online site. Of course, you can also purchase tickets at the stadium itself. You should be able to find good seats for less than $50 per. Shop around.

Game Day: Oregon Ducks vs. Kansas State Wildcats (6:30 pm CST)

It’s finally game day! Assuming you’d want to spend the majority of your day tailgating and spending time at the game site, walk around and enjoy the festivities. Glendale will be packed, especially around the stadium.

Start mapping out your Fiesta Bowl plans before it’s too late. Order tickets in advance and arrive early. Figure that many fans will be out and about. Also, rep your Ducks!
