(The Hosting News) – The roar of a crowd made of 65,000 guests, coming from more than 40 states for a college football game that has generated an estimated $1 billion in economic impact on the Tampa Bay area is making a return on January 2, 2012 – The Tampa Bay Bowl Association’s Outback Bowl. As part of that impact, new Tampa-based B2B Cloud Commerce solutions company Savtira Corporation announced today that it has joined in as an Official Game Sponsor for the 2012 game.
“We are proud sponsors of this year’s Outback Bowl event. We are excited about all the sports activities and best of all, connecting even further with our community and the business partners that make Tampa Bay the thriving metropolitan city that it is,” says Savtira CEO Timothy Roberts.
As Official Game Sponsors, Savtira will be participating as title sponsor of the “Outback Bowl Savtira Pregame Show,” as well as the “Savtira Contract Signing” event, which features both participating team head coaches and 900 civic leaders and business professionals from the local community. The 2012 game marks the 26th annual Outback Bowl event in Tampa and its 24th year as part of the prestigious New Year’s Day Bowl line-up. This bowl has become the seventh highest paying of 35 games, airing on ABC TV. Outback Steakhouse enters its 17th year as title sponsor, the longest running title sponsorship of any college bowl.
“The Outback Bowl is more than a football game. It’s a celebration for our community and we are honored to have a prominent, emerging technology company such as Savtira Corporation join our efforts as an Official Game Sponsor,” said Outback Bowl president and CEO, Jim McVay. “These events allow for excellent networking opportunities, company exposure and recognition, and of course, a great time.”
