Sun Belt Extends Partnership with GoDaddy.com Bowl Through 2017


Sun Belt Extends Partnership with GoDaddy.com Bowl Through 2017

The GoDaddy.com Bowl, the Sun Belt Conference and the Mid-American Conference announced today that the annual bowl game in Mobile, Alabama will continue to match a team from the Sun Belt and MAC through the 2017 football season.

Under a previous agreement, the two leagues were contracted with the GoDaddy.com Bowl through the 2013 season, but today’s announcement of a four year extension will ensure a partnership for the next six football seasons.

"Our relationships with both conferences continue to grow and mature and we are pleased to have them continue to be a part of our game,” said GoDaddy.com Bowl President Jerry Silverstein. “The MAC has been associated with our game for 12 years and the Sun Belt for three years. We have had many memorable games as evidenced by the TV ratings, our title sponsorship and games that have become instant classics on ESPN," said Silverstein. "This game produced the 10th most memorable game in college football history. Fans, student athletes, alumni, and coaches continue to rave about their experience in Mobile. The city continues to support all of the events leading up to the game itself. Without the great support we receive from of the City of Mobile, the County, our title sponsor, GoDaddy.com and these two conferences, hosting these events would not be possible."

“The GoDaddy.com Bowl is a perfect fit for our rising football league and we are very excited to continue to have this great bowl game as a partner,” said Sun Belt Conference Commissioner Karl Benson.  The city of Mobile and the GoDaddy.com Bowl work hard to make this a first class event for our student-athletes, fans and administrators.”

For this upcoming season the fourteenth annual GoDaddy.com Bowl will be played Sunday, January 6, 2013 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.  The will be televised nationally at 8 p.m. (CT) on ESPN.
