2021 Wasabi Fenway Bowl

Announces Wasabi Technologies as Title Sponsor

Wasabi is thrilled to partner with Fenway Sports Management to not only bring the Wasabi Fenway Bowl to life, but to also advance the game’s mission to support equitable and quality education in communities across New England.


In December 2020, the Fenway Bowl launched the Fenway Bowl Honor Roll, an annual charitable program focused on recognizing and thanking educational institutions and educators who have gone above and beyond to support their students and respective communities during the pandemic and in 2020 highlighted the achievements of 30 teachers, guidance counselors and administrators from across New England.

The newly-designated Wasabi Fenway Bowl will be supported by a 16-member Executive Committee comprised of regional business, education, and non-profit community leaders. These leaders come from various backgrounds, industries and networks and will enthusiastically support and help grow the Fenway Bowl into an annual tradition that New England can be proud of.
