    If a fanbase is large enough, I don’t think Vegas will have to worry about travel distance to avoid an embarrassing attendance. Until climate change makes the place hell on earth, enough people will be up for a trip to Vegas.

    Vegas in December/January is chilly and wonderful if its not windy, but a city thats easy to get to with plenty of hotel rooms will always get plenty of people to travel to

    Has UGA or Florida been to the Gator Bowl recently? Trying to sell a vacation to Jacksonville to people that were there a couple months prior is a tough sell.

    UGA played PSU there in 2015. Not sure if that counts as "recently."

    A time where it was still funny that Trump was running for President seems both distant and like it was yesterday to me.

    We played Bo Pelinis there for what felt like 4 years in a row and never looked back

    Do some bowls the actual college graduate portion of your fanbase would be excited to travel to. European capitals etc

    It will be played in the Raiders enclosed palace of a stadium going forward.

    Dublin was a great time.

    That was a regular season game right? I can't imagine a European Bowl Game being successful because less than a month is far too short advanced notice for European travel plans.

    Logistics sadly cannot be damned because lots of soccer is played in that timeframe and you need a stadium. Wembley in London will probably be available but that might be it.

    Place is notorious for pathetic attendance figures. Monaco matches are comparable to MAC Spring Games in crowd size.

    Just saw that BC and Georgia Tech played in Ireland two years after Penn State and way more people attended had it been in Atlanta or Chestnut Hill. Both schools have more opposing fans attend their home games than their own fans rather frequently. Must be way more college football fans in Ireland than I would have assumed.
