Phenomenal pregame pageantry in store for 39th annual bowl game
SAN DIEGO – The National Funding Holiday Bowl is steeped in college football tradition. The 39th annual bowl game is set for 4 pm on December 27th. The on-field action begins at 3:30 pm with the Pregame Spectacular presented by Wells Fargo.
Fans will want to be in their seats early to experience the pregame pageantry of the National Funding Holiday Bowl. Parachute jumpers, marching bands and The Big Flag will set the stage for America’s Finest Bowl Experience. In an impressive tribute to San Diego’s large military community, 250 Marines will unfurl the football-field-sized Big Flag for our nation’s anthem. Wells Fargo will underwrite the cost for those Marines and their dependents to attend the Holiday Bowl. Wells Fargo will also host a pregame tailgate party for the Marines.
Fans enjoying the game at Qualcomm Stadium get free access to the National Funding FanZone, a free pregame fan experience featuring a craft beer garden, food trucks, football skills challenges and more. As always, the game boasts a classic rivalry between top teams from the Pac-12 and Big Ten conferences.
The National Funding Holiday Bowl match-up will be announced this Sunday, December 4th. For tickets visit: sandiegobowlgames.com/.
