About the San Diego Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl

The Poinsettia Bowl was created by the organizers of the Holiday Bowl and is played every year at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA. The game is currently sponsored by the San Diego County Credit Union and is known as the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, and as of 2008 features a team from the Mountain West Conference and a team from the Pac-10. The Poinsettia Bowl began in 2005 with the inaugural San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl game between the Midshipmen of the United States Naval Academy and the Colorado State Rams, which Navy won.

Over the past few years the Poinsettia Bowl has also established yearly agreements with Army (2006) and Navy (2005, 2007), guaranteeing them a Poinsettia Bowl berth if they were bowl-eligible (6 wins). Because of the Mountain West’s conference ties in San Diego, as well as the city’s large naval contingent, it was no surprise that the game has attracted many local fans in addition to those traveling from outside the region.

The Poinsettia Bowl has now also come to a two-year agreement with the Pac-10 Conference, which allows the bowl to select the 7th place team from the conference in 2008, and the sixth place team in 2009.

The Poinsettia Bowl has a positive annual economic impact of nearly $8 million on the San Diego community.
