Georgia Southern partners with GO GROUND for student and fan travel to bowl game
GS Football
Georgia Southern football is bowl-bound once again, and Georgia Southern Athletics has reached an agreement with GO GROUND to provide travel opportunities to fans attending the FBC Mortgage Cure Bowl game in Orlando, Fla. on Saturday, December 21, 2019. 

Fans interested in attending the game can take advantage of one of the roundtrip buses departing from Statesboro, Savannah and Atlanta.

Buses originating from Statesboro and Savannah are $89 per seat while trips originating from Atlanta will go for $109 per seat. Fan buses do not include overnight accommodations and we will return following the end of the game.  

To book a seat on one of the buses, fans should visit the GO GROUND registration at

Game and True Blue Blue Tailgate tickets are not included in the Fan Bus experience. Tickets can be purchased through the Georgia Southern Athletic Ticket Office online at or by phone at 1(800)GSU-WINS. Due to the duration of the trip, any buses originating in Atlanta will not make it in time for the True Blue Tailgate.

"We are excited to have this new partnership with GO GROUND," said Georgia Southern Athletics Director, Tom Kleinlein. Adding, "their experience in providing travel opportunities throughout college athletics will serve our fans well and we look forward to the added opportunities they will bring for Eagle Nation."

GO GROUND handles more high-profile team travel and fan transportation than any company ever.  Although they are best known in collegiate athletics, their specialized service is embraced by leaders across campus where we develop programs for students, parents, donors and alumni and other campus stakeholders. GO GROUND deals with the improbable and deliver the impossible.


Coach Lunsford and members of the Georgia Southern Athletic Foundation Board of Trustees have committed to funding a bus seat and True Blue Tailgate ticket for the first 110 Georgia Southern students who sign up to make the trip to Orlando departing from Statesboro. Students must include their Eagle ID number as well as their Georgia Southern email address at registration.

Registration will open at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 10, 2019, and remain open until all seats are filled. Once the complimentary buses are full, students can purchase a spot on a bus at tickets are not included. Contact the Georgia Southern Ticket Office to order your game tickets at 1(800)GSU-WINS or visit
