The Orlando Sports Foundation last week announced a partnership with FBC Mortgage to be the title sponsor of the 2019 Cure Bowl. The game was previously sponsored by AutoNation.
“Being able to partner with a national company based in Orlando like FBC Mortgage is special for the Cure Bowl,”Cure Bowl executive director Alan Gooch said in a statement. “We appreciate FBC Mortgage for joining us in the fight to find a cure for cancer.”
The 2019 Cure Bowl will be the first American football game to be played at Exploria Stadium, home to Major League Soccer’s Orlando City SC and their National Women’s Soccer League affiliate Orlando Pride. It will pit Georgia Southern and Liberty, the latter making its first-ever bowl appearance. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.
With headquarters in Orlando, FBC Mortgage is a licensed mortgage lender specializing in residential lending and offers purchase, refinance, construction and renovation loans.
“FBC Mortgage is proud to be the title sponsor for the 2019 Cure Bowl,” said co-CEO Rob Nunziata.” It is a great opportunity to partner with the Orlando Sports Foundation in helping to find a cure for cancer and to support Downtown Orlando’s growing economy. It fits well into our mission of helping the communities in which we do business and our entire team of over 750 employees are excited for a great Central Florida Bowl game.”
From its inception in 2015, the Cure Bowl has raised $3.6 million to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
