2013 Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando this Winter
Orlando has become an important sports city and Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is ready to welcome fans in sunny Central Florida
The popularity of college football has grown over the years to rival that of the NFL and the annual Russell Athletic Bowl, which is held at the Citrus Bowl near Downtown Orlando. Originally founded in 1990, this bowl has undergone a myriad of name changes until purchased by Russell Athletic in June 2012. However, the event’s followers have endured despite the location and name changes to follow the game to Central Florida—its home since 2002.
The next edition of the Russell Athletic Bowl will be held on Saturday, December 28, 2013. Fans of the event can expect an amazing game along with the opportunity to experience everything Orlando has to offer. With so many local attractions—without forgetting the theme parks that have made our city famous—college football fans will be sure to have the time of their life in Central Florida. This exciting sporting event draws teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Big Ten Conference, who come to Orlando to fight for the bowl in the mild Florida winter.
Given our strategic location, Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is uniquely positioned to welcome Russell Athletic Bowl fans that come to the event. Our resort is located 15 minutes from the Citrus Bowl, as well as 10 minutes from Disney World and 5 minutes from Universal and SeaWorld. Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is always ready to welcome families, business travelers and sports fans attending events in the Orlando area. And if you know someone who’s coming—please let them know that we would love for them to stay with us!
