"The New Era Pinstripe Bowl has quickly become a major player in college football," said Mark Holtzman, Executive Director of the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. "The combination of Yankee Stadium and our partnerships with the Big Ten and ACC conferences will make for a terrific atmosphere on ABC the day after Christmas."
Since the New Era Pinstripe Bowl's inception in 2010, New Era Cap has been the official title sponsor of the game. New Era owns exclusive headwear licensing rights and non-exclusive apparel licensing rights with respect to the Bowl game's related merchandise.
"In 2010 we partnered with the New York Yankees on the inaugural New Era Pinstripe Bowl knowing it would become a truly historic event," said Chris Koch, CEO of New Era Cap." Six years later, the combination of the popularity of college football and the heritage of Yankee Stadium has catapulted the New Era Pinstripe Bowl into one of the premier bowl games."
The New Era Pinstripe Bowl has seen increased attendance in each of its first five years of existence. In 2014, a record sellout crowd of 49,012 saw Penn State defeat Boston College and establish the Bowl's highest all-time attendance figure.
