The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman, benefiting the USO, today proudly announced its lineup of sponsors for this year’s game as North Carolina and Temple prepare for A Capital Tradition on Friday, Dec. 27 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. The National Capital Region’s bowl game continues to be supported by many longtime partners throughout the region who share the commitment to honor and support our nation’s service men and women.

Title sponsor Northrop Grumman and charitable partner USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore reach a significant milestone in 2019 with their 10th year partnering with the Bowl. Northrop Grumman’s bowl sponsorship is one more way that the Falls Church, Va., company supports the USO and its mission of connecting service members to family, home and country.

This is the seventh year that the Naval Academy Athletic Association serves as the game’s hosting sponsor. Founding partner Events DC, the official convention and sports authority for the District of Columbia, has supported the Bowl since its inception and looks forward to the teams and fans enjoying Bowl Week in the hospitality of the Nation’s Capital.

Military Bowl Five-Star Sponsors include 3M, Dell Technologies and Marriott International.

The Mayflower Hotel, Autograph Collection; Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel; and the JW Marriott Washington, DC serve as official hotels for the teams, bands, fans, media and game officials.

3M, in its fifth season partnering with the Military Bowl, continues to increase its engagement and once again sponsored the 3M Play to Win Award for youths in grades 5 to 8 with a parent in the military and an interest in STEM and football. 3M also is sponsoring Pack a Pack, for Military Bowl game attendees to send care packages to service members.

Dell Technologies and Future Tech Enterprise Inc. are sponsors of the gift package that each player on the North Carolina and Temple teams will receive: a 60-inch Vizio and a wireless speaker. Sports Illustrated ranked this as the best player gift package given by any bowl game this year.

“The Military Bowl makes such a big impact largely because of our many partners and sponsors who share in the commitment to honoring and supporting our nation’s service members,” Military Bowl Foundation President & Executive Director Steve Beck said. “We are especially grateful for Northrop Grumman’s 10 years of support as out title sponsorship and thank all of our partners and sponsors for their contributions, which allows us to do so many meaningful things for our service members, raise awareness for the nation’s military and contribute to the USO.”
