We are thrilled to share that the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl will be played on December 29th at 11:15 am at Arizona Stadium in Tucson and will pit the Nevada Wolf Pack (7-5) against the Arkansas State Red Wolves (8-4). We expect the die-hard fans of these two schools to travel to Tucson to be a part of Tucson’s Biggest Football Festival. Last year’s game brought $33M in economic impact to Southern Arizona and nearly 40,000 fans to the stadium. 14,000 of those fans were local heroes (active military, vets, first responders, and teachers) that had their tickets underwritten by local businesses and individuals.
Our Bowl Game shines a national spotlight on Southern Arizona which helps tourism and economic development in the region. However, the most important reason for supporting the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl is that 100% of the net proceeds go directly to local charities. The Bowl donated over $200,000 to local charities in 2018 and would love to sell out the stadium and donate closer to $500,000 in 2018. In order to keep this important momentum going, we need your help! Please consider purchasing tickets and attending this family-friendly event or underwriting tickets for local heroes. To purchase tickets, make a donation or volunteer, visit the Arizona Bowl website at https://novaarizonabowl.com/.
