If you’re ready for some HBCU Football, then you don’t want to miss the Chicago Football Classic in Chicago, IL & the Circle City Classic in Indianapolis, IN happening respectively on the 2nd & 4th Saturday in September!

About The Chicago Football Classic:

In 1997, a small local group of African- American businessmen Larry Huggins, Everett Rand, and Tim Rand formed the Chicago Football Classic (CFC) as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to encouraging African- American youth to achieve their personal best in school and beyond.

The Chicago Football Classic’s mission is to inspire African-American high school and college students through support for programs, initiatives, and events that increase awareness of opportunities to achieve educational excellence. CFC events influence students and parents to consider the rich academic and cultural opportunities offered by Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).

The 22nd Annual Chicago Football Classic kicks off at Soldier Field on Saturday, September 14, 2019 in Chicago, IL. Kick-off time for the Football Classic is at 3:30pm.

The Chicago Football Classic (CFC) showcases football teams and marching bands from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). This year’s game features, “The Battle Of HU or Will The Real HU, Please Stand Up!” the Howard University Bison (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) and the Hampton University Pirates (Big South Conference)!
