$2,500.00 – $10,000.00
In our community, there are heroes living among us and the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl is seeking sponsors to underwrite tickets to send these heroes and their families to the Bowl game. Once a sponsor chooses a hero group, they can choose to deliver the tickets to that group themselves or the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl staff will deliver them on their behalf. Hero groups include, but are not limited to: Active Military, Veterans, Teachers, and First Responders.
In 2017, more than 13,000 tickets and $200,000 were committed to our Heroes Tribute Program thanks to the great support and generosity of our great sponsors. Thank you for supporting Tucson’s Football Festival!
The mission of The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl is to provide world-class experiences for college student-athletes, fans, and the local community, culminating in a nationally recognized college football competition. The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl is a non-profit organization that strives to inspire youth, engage the community, support local charities, and create positive economic impact in Southern Arizona.
The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl is in its fourth year and the Tucson and Southern Arizona communities have been extremely supportive in bringing a bowl game back to the Old Pueblo. The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl was sanctioned in March of 2015 as the 41st NCAA college football bowl game and the third bowl game staged in Arizona.
The Inagural NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl hosted a Mountain West Matchup of the Colorado State Rams and the University of Nevada Wolfpack, with the Wolfpack taking the bowl game’s first trophy. In 2016, the Air Force Falcons defeated Sun Belt Conference opponent, South Alabama, 45- 21. The third iteration brought one of the great stories in all of College Football, as New Mexico State won an overtime thriller 26-20 over Utah State. It was the first post season appearance for New Mexico State in 57 years.
As Tucson’s Football Festival, The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl is proud to support the Tucson community as a nonprofit organization. Within the last three years, over $500,000 has been donated to local charities. An additional $200,000 in tickets was donated to our Heroes Tribute Program. These heroes included police, teachers, firefighters, active military, and veterans, the true heroes in our community. Thank you, Supporters!
