TaxSlayer Gator Bowl going all out for 75th game

Ticket packages, companion events for Jan. 2, 2020 game announced Tuesday

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A milestone game for the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl is on the horizon and the people behind it are ready for the best one yet.

On Tuesday, the Gator Bowl announced a slew of plans and ticket packages set to honor the tradition of the 75th game. It will be played Jan. 2, 2020 at TIAA Bank Field at 7 p.m. A team from the SEC will face a team from either the ACC or Big Ten or Notre Dame.

The most appealing offer announced — four tickets, a parking pass and a game program for $75. Teams for the game will be announced Dec. 8.

“Our goal is to fill this stadium up for the 75th game. We hope the Jacksonville people want to support that,” said Gator Bowl Sports president Rick Catlett.

Teams arrive for the game on Dec. 28. The game has a series of companion events, too. An ACC/Big Ten event at Topgolf is scheduled for Dec. 30 and the SEC representative will have their turn at Topgolf the following day. There’s the VyStar New Year’s Eve run at 2 p.m. on Dec. 31, coaches’ press conferences on Jan. 1 and team pep rallies at the Jacksonville Beach Seawalk Pavilion.

An All Elite Wrestling event will be held at Daily’s Place on Jan. 1 at 7:30.

Gameday includes a TaxSlayer Tailgate party at Daily’s Place Flex Field, more pep rallies, a pregame concert with Yacht Rock Revue and a Touchdown Party leading up to the game.

“The Flex Field, we’re going to have to figure out how to use that more often, and this is one opportunity to do that with our TaxSlayer Tailgate Party,” Catlett said.
