7th Annual Cure Bowl Set For December 17 on ESPN2

ORLANDO, FLA - The 2021 Cure Bowl will be played on Friday, Dec. 17, at 6 p.m. ET, on ESPN2. The seventh annual event will be held in Orlando, Fla.

"We are looking forward to kicking off the 7th annual Cure Bowl this December," said Alan Gooch, executive director of the Cure Bowl and CEO of the Orlando Sports Foundation (OSF). "We are excited to continue the mission of bringing teams together to find a cure for cancer through the game and pregame events including the pre-game pep rally and March 2 Cure."

In the past seven years, the Cure Bowl has been used as a platform to raise $3.8 million for cancer research. The Orlando community has benefited from the funds generated at the game, with local researcher Dr. Annette Khaled at the UCF College of Medicine receiving over $1.2 million of the funds distributed.

The 2021 Cure Bowl will host teams from a combination of the American Athletic Conference, Conference USA, Mid-American Conference, Mountain West Conference, Sun Belt Conference and Army.

Memberships, hospitality, and sponsorship packages are available now. General public tickets will go on sale later this fall. For more information visit www.CureBowl.com/membership<http://www.CureBowl.com>
