JACKSONVILLE, Fla., October 30, 2020 — The TaxSlayer Gator Bowl, TaxSlayer and ESPN announced today that the 76th Annual TaxSlayer Gator Bowl will be played at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville on Saturday, January 2, 2021, at Noon EST and will be televised nationally on ESPN.

“TaxSlayer is excited to be extending our partnership as the title sponsor of the historic TaxSlayer Gator Bowl,” said Brian Rhodes, President and Chief Executive Officer of TaxSlayer. “Now in its 76th year, the bowl represents a rich history and a commitment to tradition. We are truly honored to align our name with such a prestigious event that connects us with college football fans in Jacksonville and across the country.”

The 2021 game will be the first in a six-year deal which will feature a team from the Southeastern Conference that will serve as the anchor team and will face an opponent from the Atlantic Coast Conference, which also includes the University of Notre Dame.

“We are honored to have extended relationships with our great partners at TaxSlayer, the Southeastern Conference, and Atlantic Coast Conference,” said TaxSlayer Gator Bowl Chairman, John Duce. “The 76th TaxSlayer Gator Bowl game is perfectly positioned to kick-off a strong day of college football programming leading into the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl and culminates with the Capital One Orange Bowl. We look forward to hosting the participating teams and their fans in Jacksonville on January 2nd.”

In compliance with city guidelines and following the precedent of the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Florida vs Georgia game, the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl will seat approximately 25% of the stadium capacity for this year’s game. The health and safety of all guests is our number one priority, and as such, face coverings that completely cover your mouth and nose will be required at TIAA Bank Field.
