    Default Cure Bowl New game location

    Poste since no one else has. Also listed on the Sun Belt message board that ESPN will take over the bowl in 2020 Per Brett McMurphy

    ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Sports Foundation announced at a press conference Wednesday that the 2019 Cure Bowl will be played at Orlando City Stadium.

    The Cure Bowl will be the first non-soccer sporting event to take place at Orlando City Stadium, since its opening in March 2017. Kickoff for the fifth-annual Cure Bowl will be December 21, 2019 at 2:30 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.

    Didn't see/hear that. Good move to move a G5 to a smaller stadium due to the smaller fan bases. Will be nice to see a fuller stadium on tv.

    This is a great bowl in theory but I attended a few years back when UCF played Arkansas State. Even with a hometown team there were maybe 2,000 there. In fact, we pulled into the media lot and parked. Security didn’t even get out of their cart to ask us who we were: https://i.imgur.com/JCEoV5v.jpg

    I heard on the radio that there were going to be an additional 2-3 bowls added soon, bringing the total to 65 teams going bowling every year. Don't know if that's good or bad, but hopefully the belt has a tie-in or two added on to our slate.

    Isn't there already like 82 teams that bowl every year?

    We lose the Arizona Bowl tie in but gain Myrtle Beach.

    That's all we know of that impacts us so far.

    According to Brett McMurphy:
    In 2020, ESPN Events will own 16 of the 43 FBS bowl games:

    Boston, Cure, Myrtle Beach, Frisco, Hawaii, Texas, Gasparilla, Las Vegas, Armed Forces, New Mexico, First Responder, Bahamas, Boca Raton, Camellia, Birmingham, Famous Idaho Potato

    And:
    Last year, the NCAA’s Football Oversight Committee approved the addition of a maximum of three new bowl games. Starting in 2020, a record 43 bowls – including the College Football Playoff title game – will be played, meaning a record 65 percent of the 130 FBS schools (84 teams) will play in a bowl.

    Oh come on dig up some more corporate sponsors so ALL 130 teams can go. After all isn't that what bowls are fore. It's just not fair that year after year some teams get to go and others don't. Everyone should get to participate.
