Texas-headquartered cinema company Cinemark has partnered with ESPN to showcase college football games on the big screen.

Following the success of last year’s programme, Cinemark and ESPN are expanding the number of locations showing the select matches. 

This postseason, fans will be able to watch the College Football Play-off semi-final – the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl – and the College Football Play-off semi-final – the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. 

The highly anticipated College Football Play-off National Championship Presented by AT&T will also be shown at select US cinemas. 

Wanda Gierhart Fearing, Cinemark chief marketing and content officer, said: “Cinemark is thrilled to once again offer college football fans an opportunity to watch this year’s most anticipated games in our immersive, shared environment, especially given the enthusiasm we saw in our theatres last year. 

“We are thankful for the collaboration with ESPN and our ability to bring this year’s games to even more cities as we expand participating locations. Our larger-than-life screens and booming surround sound create the ultimate experience for fans to cheer on their team without missing a single heart-pounding play.”

Michigan University will take on Texas Christian University in the Vrbo Fiestal Bowl, while University of Georgia will play Ohio State University in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, on December 31. 

The winners of the two games will then play in the College Football Playoff National Championship Presented by AT&T on January 9. 

American football fans are now able to reserve their seats when they purchase a $10 (£8/€9) concession package.
