ORLANDO, Fla. -- The East-West Shrine Game, college football's longest running all-star game, will be played at the Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium in 2010.

Florida Citrus Sports announced Wednesday that Orlando will be home to the Shrine Game for at least the next two years.

The game got its start in the San Francisco Bay area in 1925, and was played there for 80 years.

A lag in ticket sales and interest in the game from San Francisco officials, as well as a desire to have the game more centrally located, prompted a move to the Alamodome in San Antonio for the 2006 game.
