East-West Shrine Game Moving To St. Petersburg's Tropicana Field

International Shriners officials will announce this morning that the East-West Shrine Game has moved to Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., across the bay from the group’s national HQs in Tampa. The Shriners signed a two-year deal with a two-year option with Sunburst Entertainment Group, a subsidiary of the Rays, the stadium’s primary tenant. The 87th Shrine Game is set for Jan. 21 and will be broadcast on NFL Network. The longest-running college all-star football game moves from the Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium in Orlando, where it had been held the past two years. Proceeds from the game benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children.
