CHICAGO – November 11, 2021 – Coors Light, the beer made to chill, is announcing its partnership with the Black College Football Hall of Fame for the HBCU Legacy Bowl as a founding partner. This first-of-its-kind all-star game will feature 100 of the best football players from Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the country and give them the opportunity to showcase their skills, as not one HBCU football player was selected in the 2021 draft*. As a partner and supporter, Coors Light is proud to join the HBCU Legacy Bowl to spotlight these skilled athletes to bring attention and awareness to their talent in the nationally televised game on February 19, 2022.
Patrick Mahomes and his foundation, 15 and the Mahomies, announced their partnership and multi-year commitment with the Black College Football Hall of Fame for the HBCU Legacy Bowl earlier this year. As a self-proclaimed Coors Light fan, Patrick Mahomes and the brand have a long-standing relationship. Coors Light continues to support Mahomes in both his personal and charitable endeavors.
“Coors Light has been a great partner to me throughout many of my endeavors and I’m glad to have them on board as a partner of the HBCU Legacy Bowl,” says Patrick Mahomes. “It’s imperative we create a platform for HBCU players and help provide an opportunity to continue their career at the professional level.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Coors Light for the HBCU Legacy Bowl and are appreciative of their commitment to highlight player talent coming out of HBCUs,” says Co-Founder of the Black College Football Hall of Fame Doug Williams.
