Writer, comedian, producer, and television show host, Jimmy Kimmel, offers that he will be adding another title to his long list of credentials: college football’s L.A. Bowl title sponsor!
Announcing this Wednesday on his ABC show Jimmy Kimmel Live, the talk show host explained that he is sponsoring the event taking place on December 18th at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California. Right before the holidays, America will be able to tune into the sporting event named the “Jimmy Kimmel L.A. Bowl” to watch the No.1 team from the NCAA Mountain West Conference challenge the No.5 team from the NCAA Pac-12 Conference.
Kimmel excitedly proclaimed that “That’s the name of the bowl game. This is history in the making. Never before has a bowl game been named after a human being.”

Despite his usual lighthearted comedic pursuits in the world of entertainment, Kimmel asserts that this is in fact, “Not a joke!”
According to ESPN, SoFi Stadium, which hosts the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers, has initiated a multi-year deal that will keep Jimmy Kimmel’s name as the title of the event. Jason Gannon, the executive director of the Jimmy Kimmel L.A. Bowl, told Deadline that it was ultimately a strategic move made by the owner of the stadium, Stan Kroenke, in order to give the park more attraction.
