The Capital One Orange Bowl returns to Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens on New Year’s Eve as the Georgia Bulldogs face off against the Michigan Wolverines in the college football playoff semifinals.

Tickets & Game Day Info
With kickoff slated for 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 31, 2021 at Hard Rock Stadium, the Orange Bowl is the ultimate way for college football fans to ring in the New Year. While tickets are sold out, Ticketmaster’s verified resale marketplace and other fan-to-fan ticket exchanges are active.

Orange Bowl Legacy
Every year, the Orange Bowl inducts some of the great players and coaches of Orange Bowl history into its Hall of Fame. In 2019, that list included 2004 Miami offensive lineman Vernon Carey, 1999 Florida wide receiver Travis Taylor and 1996 Notre Dame wide receiver Derrick Mayes. The Lou Groza Award for place-kickers and Courage Awards are also handed out each year.

Where to Watch the Orange Bowl
If you don’t have tickets to the Orange Bowl but still want to see the action, the game will be broadcast live on ESPN. And if you’re in Greater Miami & Miami Beach during the New Year’s Eve holiday, belly up to one of our favorite local sports bars to cheer on your team.
