With the Iowa State Cyclones headed to the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, Texas, Dec. 28, fans are ready to hit the road.

The Alumni Association and Iowa State Athletics are partnering with Anthony Travel to set up fans with accommodations in San Antonio. The three-day travel packages include lodging at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio.

More than 878 travel packages have been purchased so far.

“We’re planning on a very large fan base,” said Heather Botine, director of travel and merchandise at the alumni association.

Due to a high number of fans purchasing the packages, currently only air travel packages are available starting at $2,115 for a double-bed room. The round-trip charter flight will depart from Des Moines on Dec. 26 and arrive in San Antonio the same day for check-in and an exclusive welcome event at the Grand Hyatt hotel that is currently being planned.

The travel packages website through the Alumni Association and Iowa State Athletics said, “Cyclone Club members should purchase their bowl game tickets directly through the Iowa State Athletics Ticket Office (by logging onto their Cyclones Athletics Account at or by calling 888-478-2925) to receive priority seating.

All bowl game tickets purchased as part of a travel package will be seated after Cyclone Club donors in the best available seats, by order of booking date.”
