McKinney, TX — SRS Distribution Inc., a major building products distributor, and ESPN Events, a division of ESPN, announced Tuesday that SRS Distribution is the new title sponsor for the Las Vegas Bowl, as part of a five-year agreement. The SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl will make its debut in its new home at Allegiant Stadium this December.
The annual college football postseason event will also feature a new matchup between the Pac-12 and Big Ten conferences, as part of a rotating cycle that also includes the Southeastern Conference.
“We are truly excited to welcome SRS Distribution to the Sports and Entertainment Capital of the World,” said John Saccenti, executive director of the SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl. “This creates an exciting relationship just as our game reaches new heights in its 30th year by moving into a new, state-of-the-art stadium and kicking off our matchup with three top conference brands that span across the nation.”
