SAN DIEGO, Calif. (11/7/13)--A college football bowl game sponsored by San Diego County CU is set to take place the day after Christmas.
The San Diego County CU Poinsettia Bowl, which has been sponsored by San Diego's largest locally owned credit union since it was first held in 2005, will be broadcast both on ESPN television and radio networks.
"We're looking forward to the big game," said San Diego County CU President/CEO Teresa Halleck. "SDCCU's support of this bowl game benefits the entire credit union industry through increased awareness. Credit union customers across the country also are reminded that credit unions contribute to our lives and communities in tangible ways."
Also, the game will feature new teams over the next six years. In a separate announcement, the Mid-American Conference said Wednesday it has entered a partnership with game organizers.
The conference will act as a primary partner in 2017 and 2019, and as a secondary partner for the 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2018, said the Miami University Athletics website. A team from the MAC will play a team from the Mountain West Conference in the 2017 and 2019 seasons.
The Poinsettia Bowl is the only game among the 35 college football bowl games to have a credit union as a title sponsor.
