UTEP: Boy band One Direction officially coming to Sun Bowl Stadium in 2014 story image

EL PASO, Texas –The English-Irish boy band was recently seen this weekend in a picture with all five members in University of Texas at El Paso athletics jerseys.

The stadium tour officially included UTEP's Sun Bowl today.

For those of you who don't know, One Direction is extremely popular with the teenage crowd, specifically girls.

They have hit songs like “What Makes You Beautiful” and “The Best Song Ever,” which leads UTEP officials to believe the concert will be sold out.

"They've been constantly in the media. When they released the third album, like I said, the fact that they went to No. 1 in 100 countries so fast that gives us a lot of confidence in the industry that this is a strong group. In Europe, they played to sold-out groups," Jorge Vasquez, UTEP executive director of special events, said.

Presale tickets are already on sale if you are a Citi Card member.

General public can buy tickets starting Dec. 7.
