Camping World has extended its brand reach in Orlando, reaching an agreement with Florida Citrus Sports to become the new title sponsor of one of the three college football bowl games played annually in Central Florida.
Camping World Bowl will replace the game previously known as the Russell Athletic Bowl, according to a story by the Orlando Sentinel. The game will continue to feature tie-ins with teams from the ACC and Big 12 conferences and will take place in mid-December.
“We’re excited to extend our successful partnership with Florida Citrus Sports and the collegiate partners who participate in this great game each year,” Camping World CEO and Chairman Marcus Lemonis says. "The core platform we have in Orlando with the stadium naming rights and Camping World Kickoff game makes this expansion a natural fit. Florida is a key market for us and that coupled with the nationwide exposure of this post season bowl game makes it an ideal opportunity.”
