The nation’s oldest college football all-star game is returning to Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida on January 17, 2015. The East-West Shrine Game serves as a key NFL showcase opportunity for player prospects prior to the NFL Combine and Draft.
Play-by-Play Sports Properties, LLC will again produce the expanded worldwide network radio broadcast of the game with the pregame show airing at 3:15pm ET.
Listeners can hear the 90th Annual East-West Shrine Game on SiriusXM (Channel- 88) on satellite radios and on the SiriusXM App, online at http://www.shrinegame.com and on the free Tunein Radio App and on http://www.tunein.com.
