History: Chick-Fil-A Bowl
The Chick-Fil-A Bowl, previously known as the Peach Bowl, originally was a fundraiser for the Lions Clubs of Georgia. However, after years of shaky attendance, the game was taken over by the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce.
Chick-Fil-A became the title sponsor in 1998 and the name was changed to the Chick-Fil-A Bowl in 2006.
Under the new national championship playoff format, the Chick-Fil-A Bowl will host national semifinals in 2016, '19, '22 and '25.
