The Tournament of Roses announced on Tuesday that this season’s Rose Bowl Game presented by Vizio will feature a new logo and modifications to the champion’s trophy as part a celebration to honor the 100th playing of the game.
The Tournament of Roses released an official statement on the changes:
“As the first postseason bowl to reach 100 games, we are excited to mark this momentous occasion with enhancements to some of our iconic marks,” Tournament of Roses Executive Director William B. Flinn said. “We look forward to the events leading up to January 1 to celebrate our illustrious history and for the future of The Granddaddy of Them All®.”
The new logo will be used in conjunction with celebrations leading up to the event and will include among other feature an homage to the San Gabriel Mountains, which serve as a backdrop to the game and stadium.
The new trophy will feature 24k yellow gold vermeil accents and be topped of with a 3/4 size sterling silver football.
Given the historical significance, Know It All Football is breaking our “black and white” rule within our content to give our readers a first-hand, full color look at the new logo. Enjoy!
