(Miami, OK) – The Midwest Classic Bowl, a sanctioned National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) football championship event will return to Miami, Oklahoma on Sunday, December 2, 2018. Last year, the game featured the Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College Golden Norsemen and Independence Community College Pirates in a top-ranked showdown. The event, presented by Downstream Resort was attended by nearly 5,000 fans and recruiters from across the nation.
Plans are underway for the 2018 edition of the game and officials with the Midwest Classic Bowl have announced that sponsorships are available. Event sponsorships begin at $300. According to Bowl Director Amanda Davis, response to the event has been great. “We were very pleased in 2017 with the number of sponsors that came on-board to support this regional event. With the support of the Quapaw Nation and other top level sponsors, we were able to present each player and coach with a nice welcoming gift. Our bowl offers a team stipend for participation as well as hotel rooms for two nights and three team meals while in Miami, Oklahoma. The organizing committee worked hard to set our bowl game apart from others and really focused on delivering first class hospitality for those selected to compete in the bowl game. We feel like what we offer is in line with division one level events and it was all made possible through the help of our amazing sponsors,” Davis added.
The official bowl game program is produced by the Miami OK Convention & Visitors Bureau and space is available. Ads begin at $100 for a quarter page ad. Full page ads are $250. Program ads are printed in full color. Those interested in securing an ad in the program can contact the CVB at 918-542-4435.
Team selection for 2018 will be announced by the NJCAA on Wednesday, November 14, 2018. “We have six committees in place and meetings have started to prepare for the three day event,” Davis said. Events will kick off with both teams on Friday, November 30.
