Media Credentials


The date for the St. Petersburg Bowl is Monday, December 26 at 11:00 a.m.  The game will be nationally televised on ESPN.

Media interested in covering this year’s St. Petersburg Bowl can apply for credentials by filling out the online credential request form. Credential requests will be considered only if they are submitted by an editor, director or producer. Please note that only requests from professional news outlets will be considered. Non-news and freelance media requests will not be approved due to licensing and copyright considerations.

Submitting a request does not guarantee approval.

Please note that having been credentialed for past St. Petersburg Bowl games or other bowl games does not automatically qualify an agency or individual for credentials. Membership in a writers or broadcasters association does not automatically qualify an agency or individual for credentials. The St. Petersburg Bowl reserves the right to revoke any credential at any time.

The online application process will begin on Sunday, December 4 after the 2016 teams have been announced.

The deadline for submitting a credential application is Monday, December 12.
