Orange Bowl Logo

Orange Bowl Logo

Both the Orange Bowl game and its logo can boast a long and interesting history.

Meaning and history

The annual American college football bowl game, which is played in the Miami metropolitan area, was first held in 1935. One of the earliest logotypes (1951-1988) featured a cartoonish orange king wearing a crown. The same character was depicted on the Orange Bowl logo during the years when the game was sponsored by FedEx, although the overall design was different.

In 2011, the anthropomorphized orange was replaced by a simpler design. The orange now had no face but was still wearing a crown. The same approach has been utilized on the current logo, which has been in use since 2015.
