Italian Bowl heading to Toledo July 1
The Italian Bowl heads stateside this summer when the 42nd IFL Championship game is played Saturday, July 1 in the Glass Bowl on the University of Toledo campus.
Planning for the event is well underway, and event organizers recently shared a progress update, including the announcement of the Italian Bowl’s leading supporters and sponsors, including Marco’s Pizza and the following organizations:
• Associated General Contractors of Northwest Ohio
• BCI Block Communications, Inc.
• Buckeye Broadband
• Destination Toledo
• Foundation Steel
• GEYDE Development
• Hyphen Innovations
• Lucas County
• Shumaker
• Sofo’s Italian Market
• Southern Glazer’s
• The City of Toledo
• The Consulate of Italy – Detroit
• The Regional Growth Partnership
• Toledo Blade
• Toledo Sister Cities International
• University of Toledo College of Medicine
Organizers hope the XLII Italian Bowl will encourage shared experiences and collaboration between Italy and the United States, as well as the city of Toledo, which was twinned with Ferrara, Italy, in November 2021.
Planning for the Italian Bowl has been two years in the making, when a group of American businesspeople and football fans extended an invitation to the Federazione Italiana di American Football (FIDAF), which was delighted to accept. This group has been carefully following our top championship and recognized the potential of Americans’ beloved sport to publicize Italy and share the country’s qualities and traditions.
