Fort Worth-based Ulterra, a fast growing drill bit company, has signed on as the title sponsor of the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl’s Tailgate Outpost.
The Ulterra Tailgate Outpost is a pre-game fan fest area free to the public.
“We are very excited to announce our partnership with Ulterra,” said Brant Ringler, executive director of the bowl. “The Tailgate Outpost has been such a popular place over the years, and now with Ulterra’s support, it will become even more enjoyable for both our past and present military service personnel and our fans in general.”
The Tailgate Outpost will feature a full exhibition area including interactive displays, current and vintage military hardware, a beer garden, food trucks and more.
The tailgate will also include the Veterans Village presented by the American Red Cross. The Veterans Village consists of several dozen non-profit military organizations designed to help and provide assistance to armed forces veterans.
The 16th annual Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl will be played on Saturday, Dec. 22 at 2:30 p.m. CT. Pending eligibility, the game will feature teams from the Big 12 Conference and American Athletic Conference.
The Ulterra Tailgate Outpost will be open on game day from 10:30 a.m. until 2 p.m., in Lot 3, located on the north side of TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium.
The Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl is one of 14 bowl games owned and operated by ESPN Events, a division of ESPN.
