For many people, the arrival of fall is signified by the feel of a slight chill in the air, the sight of brightly colored leaves dressing up the trees, and even the smell of pumpkin spice everything wafting through the air. For sports fans, however, the arrival of fall is signified by the sights and sounds of grown men wearing tight pants, helmets, and tossing the ole pigskin around on a brightly colored field. Fall is football season, closely followed by Bowl Season for the college fans, and the Annapolis Military Bowl is one of the newest ones added to the club!
Originally Named the Congressional Bowl and Then the Eagle Bank Bowl
This bowl game was determined to be needed when a couple of “regular guys” realized that the Washington area did not have its own bowl game. The first Eagle Bank Bowl was held at the RFK Stadium on December 20, 2008 (Wake Forest won over Navy) and history was made. In 2010, the name was changed to the Annapolis Military Bowl, and in 2013 it was moved to the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium where it has stayed every year since.
This Year’s Annapolis Military Bowl Will Be Held on December 31
The last day of the year is always special, and in Annapolis the last day of 2018 will be even more memorable than ever before as the Annapolis Military Bowl will be held on this auspicious day. The teams have yet to be determined, but the place and time (straight up noon!) are set in stone. Tickets are not on sale yet, but vouchers for free tickets to the bowl game will be offered to active duty military members and their families soon (this includes reservists). To learn when they are going to be reservable, you can sign up to be notified here. Up to 8 tickets can be reserved for each family, and 25,000 tickets will be released by the USO as a thank you for the sacrifices made by our brave military men and women.
