AMARILLO, TX – It’s become a tradition in the Texas Panhandle dating back to the days of the Amarillo Rattlers and the Gorillas where sports fans get to come out and watch a little hockey on New Year’s Eve.
The Amarillo Bulls will be hosting their 6th annual New Year’s Eve Game next Saturday, Dec. 31 when they entertain the Odessa Jackalopes at 7 pm at the Budweiser Bull Pen in the Amarillo Civic Center. The game is co-sponsored by Budweiser and Jimmy Johns.
Fans can enter to win a Bud Light Igloo Cooler, a Northface Jacket courtesy of Jimmy Johns and 2017-18 Season Tickets. There will be glow sticks and party favors handed out at the door as well as the return of $1 hotdogs.
There is an exciting ticket promotion of $10 Red and Silver Section tickets, as well as Free Child’s Ticket with the purchase of an Adult.

At the Christmas Break, the Bulls are one point back of the Corpus Christi IceRays for the fourth and final playoff spot in the South Division.
The Amarillo Bulls will return to action prior to the New Year’s Eve game with two versus the Odessa Jackalopes on Thursday, Dec. 29 and Friday Dec. 30 at 7 pm at Ector County Coliseum.
