The Game


tazon15gd05The annual Tazón De Estrellas (Bowl of the Stars) featuring a Global Football-organized Team Stars & Stripes squad of select NCAA Division III student-athletes will be hosted for the third year running by CETYS University, returning this December to Tijuana, site of the dramatic 2015 comeback victory in Sra. Margarita Aztiazarán de Fimbres Stadium. .

The success and popularity of the 2015 and 2016 events has led to the game against the CONADEIP All-Stars representing Mexico’s private universities being played on the pristine Tijuana campus stadium which is sure to be sold out well in advance of the game on Saturday, December 16, 2017.

This year a unique gathering of Tazón De Estrellas and Aztec Bowl alumni will celebrate 20 years of Global Football giving NCAA D-III players and coaches an opportunity to play in this special game in Mexico to complete their college careers.  Alumni interested in joining the celebrations should contact Director of Player Personnel & Football Operations John Roslien ( and also like the Global Football Facebook page for details.

The Tazón de Estrellas is the focal point for the Global Football Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit initiative, which assists athletes in meeting the expenses associated with traveling overseas to realize their dreams of competing against other American football enthusiasts and experiencing different cultures. The foundation allows potential benefactors to make charitable donations to offset costs that might otherwise prevent the student athletes from undertaking the trip of a lifetime. To inquire about making a donation to the Global Football Foundation to assist student-athletes, please contact Patrick Steenberge at or 817-219-7274.
