The San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl in December 2021 will be played at Petco Park under a new agreement that will make the Padres ballpark the venue for a minimum of five years.
In July, the San Diego City Council removed the restriction from the city’s contract with the Padres banning football from being played at ballpark.
This year’s postseason NCAA football bowl game will be played December 28 at 5pm. The addition of bleachers in right field and standing room areas will increase capacity to nearly 50,000 people.
