FedEx Orange Bowl

Orange Bowl Tickets


The FedEx Orange Bowl is the 4th 'oldest'/longest-played college football bowl game in bowl history. Since its inception in 1935 it is also one of the most popular games. As far as age, the Orange Bowl is only topped by the Rose Bowl (the oldest with a 1902 inception), the Sun Bowl and the Sugar Bowl (1934). Every year in early January, just days before the BCS Championship game, tens of thousands of fans get together at LandShark Stadium (also called Orange Bowl Stadium at times) in Miami Gardens, FL to see their favorite teams go for a win with FedEx being its title sponsor since 1989. The bowl is also a member of the Bowl Championship Series.
