Youth Football Championship Games set for Nov. 13 at City Stadium

The department will hold its youth football championship games on Saturday, Nov. 13 at City Stadium, previously known as the University of Richmond Stadium, which is located at 601 McCloy St. Three games with players ranging in age from 8-years-old to 15-years-old will be played starting at 10 a.m. to determine the junior, midget and peewee championship teams.
The teams represent the department’s community centers located throughout the city. Approximately 1,720 children in the city play football through the department’s athletic programs at city community centers. They are led by department staff and largely supported by volunteer coaches and parents.
The games this year will include a halftime program featuring the Huguenot High School Marching Band.
Come out and support the city’s youth and get a glimpse of the football players of tomorrow. Tickets can be purchased at the gate and are $2 for children age 11 and younger and $4 for adults and children age 12 and older.
