ORLANDO, FL – The 2020 Cure Bowl will be played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. Kickoff for the sixth-annual Cure Bowl will be Saturday, Dec. 26, at noon ET on ESPN.
“We appreciate the city of Orlando working with us this year as we move the Cure Bowl from the third weekend in December to the fourth for 2020,” CEO of the Orlando Sports Foundation and Executive Director of the Cure Bowl Alan Gooch stated. “We are excited that we are still able to offer a bowl game experience to two deserving teams and to continue our mission of bringing teams together to find a cure for cancer.”
In the past five years, the Cure Bowl has been used as a platform to raise $3.8 million for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The Orlando community has benefited from the funds generated at the game with local BCRF researcher Dr. Annette Khaled at the UCF College of Medicine receiving over $1.1 million of the funds distributed.
The annual postseason NCAA college bowl game was previously played at both Camping World Stadium (2015-208) and Exploria Stadium (2019).
