    The 2015 San Diego County Credit Union (SDCCU) Poinsettia Bowl will go down two days before Christmas – and will be followed by a big, post-game fireworks show, organizers revealed Wednesday.

    The Poinsettia Bowl will kick off at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 23. The game will feature a bowl-eligible Army taking on a team from the Mountain West Conference. It’ll be televised on ESPN.

    After the game, the fireworks will fly with an elaborate pyrotechnics show dubbed “Stadium Spectacular 2015,” produced by Pyro Spectaculars by Souza.

    “What SDCCU Poinsettia Bowl fans will see will be bigger, more powerful and more creative than any show they have ever seen,” said Pyro Spectaculars President and Chief Creative Director James Souza in a media release.

    The fireworks show will be sponsored by KyXy 96.5/Energy 103.7 and San Diego 6 the CW.

    San Diego Bowl Game Association President Kimberley Layton said the fireworks extravaganza will be unlike any other.

    “Football fans will be in for a memorable day on December 23rd,” said Layton. “Stadium Spectacular 2015 will set a new standard for fireworks entertainment in the United States. It doesn’t get any better than exciting college football two days before Christmas followed by a post-game show you will have to see to believe.”

    View level seats to the game are $20, while other seats range from $35 to $70. Family four-packs are also available for a better deal. Pre-sale tickets are available now by calling the Bowl office at (619) 285-5061. The general public ticket sale begins online on Nov. 1.
