Orlando’s third bowl game, the Cure Bowl, announced for Florida Citrus Bowl.
The city of Orlando and Orlando Sports Foundation formally announced the launch of the Cure Bowl Wednesday.
The game, which will debut sometime in December of 2015, will be the third postseason bowl game hosted by the Citrus Bowl. The stadium currently hosts the Russell Athletic and Capital One bowls. The new game will feature teams from the American Athletic and Sun Belt conferences.
The game is slated to be the 39th bowl game in 2015, excluding the national championship game.
“It’s been an exciting week here in Orlando,” Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said during a news conference in front of the Citrus Bowl. The stadium is currently undergoing a $200 million renovation that won’t be completed until November.
