Walk-Ons Is Out As Independence Bowl Sponsor After This Year
The Walk-On's Independence Bowl will be looking for a new name, and more importantly a new sponsor, after this year's game.
Today the Independence Bowl announced that Walk-On's will be leaving the game after December 26th edition. It will be the third year of the restaurant's sponsorship.
In a reslease today, Walk-On's CEO Brandon Landry said:
"As we kick-off our third and final year as the title sponsor for the Independence Bowl, we want to thank the Independence Bowl Foundation team for making this partnership such a great experience. As a Louisiana-founded brand, we have enjoyed supporting not only the local community, but the state as a whole, and we’re looking forward to seeing the continued success of bowl week and the long-standing tradition of post-season football in Northwest Louisiana."
Independence Bowl Foundation Chairman Ar Carmody IV added:
"Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar has been a great partner as title sponsor of the Independence Bowl the past two years. Their involvement and hard work has helped the growth of our game and bowl week events. We look forward to working with Walk-On's this year to create a great atmosphere surrounding the 2019 Walk-On's Independence Bowl. Our leadership is taking a very proactive approach in our search for a new title sponsor to ensure the continued success of the Independence Bowl for the foreseeable future."
The Independence Bowl is set for Thursday, December 26th at 3pm.
