The Bahamas Bowl is a NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision college football bowl game played annually in Nassau, Bahamas, at the 15,000-seat Thomas Robinson Stadium.[2] The Bowl has tie-ins with the Mid-American Conference and Conference USA.

History

The inaugural edition of the Bahamas Bowl, played in 2014, was the first major (FBS or historical equivalent) bowl game to be played outside the United States and Canada between two U.S. teams since the January 1, 1937, Bacardi Bowl in Havana, Cuba.[3] The game featured teams from the Mid-American Conference and Conference USA;[4] that conference matchup has continued annually.[5] In July 2019, the MAC announced a continuation of its tie-in with the bowl through the 2025–26 football season.[6]

From its inception to 2017, the game was sponsored by the Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurant franchise and officially known as the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl.[7] After Restaurant Brands International acquired Popeyes in 2017, they declined to renew sponsorship. Elk Grove Village, Illinois—"home to the largest industrial park in the United States"—picked up title sponsorship in 2018, with the bowl using the official naming of Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl.[8] The name lasted until Elk Grove Village ended its sponsorship in March 2020.[9]

The winning team is presented with a trophy, since 2016 named the Prime Minister’s Trophy.[10] The current trophy, in use since the 2018 playing, is approximately 30 inches (76 cm) tall and weighs nearly 30 pounds (14 kg).[10]
