The Independence Bowl Foundation and Duck Commander have reached a mutually agreed upon decision concluding the Louisiana brand’s role as title sponsor of the Independence Bowl.
Duck Commander signed on as the Independence Bowl’s sixth title sponsor in February of 2014. The 39th Independence Bowl game was held on December 27, 2014 as South Carolina defeated Miami 24-21.
“We’ve enjoyed our sponsorship of the 2014 bowl, but think it is time for another sponsor to take the lead,” stated Willie Robertson, CEO of Duck Commander.
The Independence Bowl Foundation has contracted a third-party search firm to find a title sponsor for 2015 and beyond.
The Independence Bowl Foundation has also begun preparing for the 2015 game. The process of renewing local corporate sponsors is already underway, and ticket renewal forms will be mailed out in the near future.
The Independence Bowl Foundation staff and volunteers have begun preparing for the more than 15 events they host throughout the year. A date and time has been secured for the annual Youth Football Clinic, which will be announced next week, and a date for the annual Kickoff Luncheon will also be announced in the near future.
