Details of Wing Bowl and the Ticket Luck value
A bowl that has captured the imagination of one and all over the years is about to dish up its latest installment. The Wing Bowl is coming your way. The football put on show for the fans to enjoy over the years has been amazing which is why fans queue up to buy Wing Bowl tickets to catch this fun-filled occasion live.
The Wing Bowl was incepted in 1993 by the duo Al Morganti and Angelo Cataldi. They were both radio hosts in Philadelphia and avid football fans. When it became apparent that Philadelphia Eagles will not be going to the Super Bowl, the two of them decided to make up another little bowl event. It wasn’t devised as a football event. The thought behind it was to pay homage to gluttony, hence its name the Wing Bowl.
The event made its debut in the year 1993. The venue was the lobby of Wyndham Franklin Plaza Hotel. The first Wing Bowl was attended by a paltry crowd of only ten people who turned up to watch Carmen Cordero win the event. It was a modest start by any standards to an event that has now gone on to become a national craze.
As it grew in stature, the demand for Wing Bowl tickets increased multiple times over. The event was moved to different venues to accommodate the increasing number of fans properly. The current venue is Wells Fargo Center where it has been since 2011. There are two separate qualification competitions to enter the main draw. In the first Morganti plays the judge and the contestants are given five Big Macs and sixty ounces of creamed spinach to gulp down in a prescribed time limit. The second qualification around is known as the “Wingoff” where the participants have to eat as much as they can in a ten minute duration.
The Wing Bowl takes place on the Friday of the Super Bowl weekend. As much as twenty thousand fans on the average turn up to attend the festivities every year. The event kicks off in the morning between 6.15 and 6.30 am and wraps up three hours later. Apart from wing eating there are a lot of other activities for the fans to take part in. The Wingettes partner every competitor to the floor and provide them with the wings during the main event.
The competition itself has increased with every year that has gone by. Now the participants have to gulp down a staggering number of wings to come out on top. The 2012 event was won by “Takeru Kobayashi” who established a new record by eating a whooping three hundred and thirty seven wings. If history is anything to go by then that record might just tumble at this year’s tournament. So don’t miss out on the chance to grab Wing Bowl tickets and join the thousands in attendance live at an unforgettable occasion.
