Well this didn’t take long.
The Miami Beach Bowl is one of college football’s newer bowl games, but after just three years in Miami, it looks like the game will be moved for the future. According to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, Frisco, Texas will likely be the new location for the game starting in 2017.
Frisco, Texas has a 20,000-seat stadium that is used for both the Dallas MLS team, as well as the annual FCS championship game. The new location may not have the appeal of “Miami Beach”, but they will be playing in a real football stadium as opposed to using the Marlins Park baseball field for the game.
Unfortunately for the Miami Beach Bowl, it’s most memorable moment won’t be a spectacular play or a shocking upset… but instead a giant fight on the field after the game.
Yeah, rebranding probably isn’t a bad idea here.
