Fenway Park will host an annual college football bowl game starting in 2020.

Fenway Sports Group made the announcement Tuesday afternoon, unveiling a “Fenway Bowl” banner on the Green Monster.

The game will be played between teams from the AAC and the ACC. The date for the first game has not yet been announced but it is expected to be played sometime in December of next year.

Fenway Park has hosted a number of football games in recent years. Boston College played Notre Dame in 2015 and The Game between Harvard and Yale was played at Fenway in 2018.

The Boston Patriots played at Fenway in the 1960’s.
