Redesigned Website Launched
MAACO Bowl Las Vegas New Look
Found At MAACOBOWLLV.COM
LAS VEGAS - Along with a new title sponsor in 2009 comes a new home on the World Wide Web for MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.
A newly designed site for the annual college football classic went live in mid-August at the address www.maacobowllv.com.
''With MAACO coming aboard as our title sponsor this season, we thought it was a perfect time to refresh our look to better match our new logo,'' said MAACO Bowl Las Vegas Executive Director Tina Kunzer-Murphy. ''I think fans and media will find it easier to navigate and follow the road to the 2009 bowl.''
The cleaner, more user-friendly website continues to show off the world famous Las Vegas skyline in its masthead but now incorporates the red, blue and yellow colors from the new logo, which was unveiled in April.
The 2009 MAACO Bowl Las Vegas will be played Tuesday, Dec. 22, with kickoff scheduled for 5 p.m. PT at Sam Boyd Stadium. Tickets prices remained unchanged this year at $20, $30, $50 and $100 and can be reserved by phone at 1-866-388-FANS or online at www.unlvtickets.com. Group & Corporate Package information is available by phone at (702) 732-3912.
The MAACO Bowl Las Vegas, which is owned and operated by ESPN Regional Television (ERT), will be televised nationally on ESPN. Last year, the 17th edition of the bowl attracted 40,047 fans to Sam Boyd Stadium, which marked the fourth consecutive sellout crowd as Arizona defeated BYU 31-21.
Since 1972 MAACO's impressive growth has secured a dominant 47% share of the U.S. automotive aftermarket paint market. With extraordinary brand recognition, nearly 500 MAACO franchise centers in the U.S. and Canada, and system-wide sales approaching one-half billion dollars, MAACO is recognized by consumers, experts in franchising and the media for overall excellence and growth potential.
