INGLEWOOD, Calif. – SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park officially announced a new college football postseason bowl game that will feature teams from the Pac-12 and Mountain West conferences called the LA Bowl.

The future home stadium of the NFL’s Los Angeles Chargers and Los Angeles Rams confirmed the new bowl game on Wednesday, February 26.

“Similar to SoFi Stadium, the LA Bowl game is designed to deliver an authentic Southern California experience,” said Jason Gannon, managing director, SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park. “In addition, our bowl game events throughout the week will embrace Los Angeles as the entertainment capital of the world.”

The bowl will host teams from the Pac-12 and Mountain West in its inaugural game in December 2020. The matchup will feature the Mountain West’s No. 1 selection against the Pac-12’s No. 5 selection.

“The Mountain West is delighted to partner with the Pac-12 Conference and the outstanding management team assembled at SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park to launch this exciting new bowl game,” said Mountain West Conference commissioner Craig Thompson. “Los Angeles is a tremendous market firmly within our footprint that is home to a large number of our member institutions’ alumni and the area from which many of our student-athletes are recruited.  This will be a top-flight postseason destination for the No. 1 selection from our Conference.”

“We are thrilled to partner with LA Bowl and bring a Pac-12 presence to the new state-of-the-art facility at SoFi Stadium, in one of the biggest markets right in our footprint,” said Pac-12 Conference commissioner Larry Scott. “The entertainment presence of the new facility will provide great experiences for our student-athletes and fans as the Pac-12 continues its postseason matchup with the Mountain West.”

The LA Bowl will take place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California from 2020 through 2025.
