One of South Florida’s biggest sports traditions is the Orange Bowl, an annual event that first launched on 1935. Sponsored by Capital One, this event focuses on college football and has been hosted at Sun Life Stadium for more than 15 years. Originally the game was designed as a means of boosting South Florida tourism, but it has since become an important college football event making a huge economic impact and providing a lot of media exposure to South Florida. It is also recognized for its charitable contributions and the efforts to reach out to the community, establishing itself as one of the most important fundraising events of the region.
This year, the 2015 College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl is being held on New Year’s Eve. The participating teams won’t be announced until Sunday, December 6th but considering the date, it’s going to be one of the most exciting games and events of the year. You’ll be able to watch an excitingly competitive game of football while celebrating the end of 2015 with fireworks and a lively audience that will keep that atmosphere at a high energy during the game and the end of the year festivities.
