The St. Petersburg Bowl is an NCAA-sanctioned post-season college football bowl game that has been played annually at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, since 2008. It was first played known as the magicJack St. Petersburg Bowl, after corporate sponsor magicJack. When Beef O'Brady's became the sponsor in 2009, the official name was changed to the St. Petersburg Bowl Presented by Beef 'O' Brady's and in 2010, the game became known as the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl. The restaurant stopped sponsoring the bowl in 2014. On June 18, 2014, it was announced that Bitcoin-oriented payment service provider BitPay would become the new sponsor of the game, renamed the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl. As part of the sponsorship, the digital currency will also be accepted for ticket sales at the game.
The bowl game features teams from the American Athletic Conference against either the Atlantic Coast Conference or Conference USA, unless one of the conferences does not have enough bowl eligible teams, in which case the Mid-Atlantic or Sun Belt Conference are eligible to send a team.
