Celebration Bowl TicketsThe Celebration Bowl launched in 2015 as the only active bowl game of the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). This bowl game was created to replace and combine two former bowl games, the Pelican Bowl and the Heritage Bowl, that were typically played by teams from the same conferences as the current Celebration Bowl. The Celebration Bowl is played at the state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz Stadium in warm, beautiful Atlanta. The bowl is a great opportunity to see this vibrant area and is this city's premiere post-season college football event. During the first four games played, a North Carolina school has participated, and North Carolina A&T has won all three of the games the team has played. Other teams that have participated, thus far, include the North Carolina Central Eagles, the Alcorn State Braves and the Grambling State Tigers.

Are there any Celebration Bowl rivalries?Due to the fact this bowl game is relatively new, a classic rivalry has not yet been established. However, the two conferences in addition to all historically black colleges and universities' (HBCU) football teams are focusing on developing rivalries at an interstate and regional level rather than to develop rival games against the traditional football power conferences, such as the Big 12 and SEC. The opportunity to pit one conference champion versus another provides some good conference-to-conference rivalry possibilities, however.
In which stadiums has the Celebration Bowl been played?In 2015 and 2016, the Celebration Bowl was played at the Georgia Dome, which was bulldozed in November 2017. Since then, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium has been the home of the Celebration Bowl.
How are the teams for the Celebration Bowl selected?The teams are selected from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) and the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC). These two conferences are the primary NCAA Division I conferences of the HBCU. Due to scheduling, the selection process has transformed since the initial bowl game. In the past, the champions of each division were not allowed to participate because the bowl game was played before the end of the two conferences’ playoff seasons. In 2017, the SWAC canceled their championship game to allow the regular season champs to play at the Celebration Bowl. In 2018, they changed the selection process again by moving up the conference championship game to be played before the Celebration Bowl. This allowed the bowl game to be played by both conference champions.
