Let’s Celebrate Amateur Sports – Events DC’s New Amateur Sports Initiative

Why should professionals have all the fun? Events DC is shining the spotlight on amateur sports, giving you the chance to watch athletes who play with as much passion and energy as the pros.

We’re enhancing the Events DC Amateur Sports Initiative to give more opportunity for local youth to have an enhanced platform for showcasing their skill. We are starting with the Events DC Kickoff Classic featuring six Washington, DC high school football teams playing in historic RFK Stadium.

The Events DC Kickoff Classic is a high school football triple-header scheduled for September 15 at RFK Stadium.

As the ultimate high school football celebration, the Events DC Kickoff Classic will feature three matchups:

  • Dunbar vs. The Maret School
  • Woodrow Wilson vs. Archbishop Carroll
  • Friendship Collegiate vs. H.D. Woodson

Come on out and enjoy the games!  There will be marching bands, halftime performances and a Pepsi Fan Zone – featuring a concert stage, brand engagement giveaways and lots of family-fun.

See these local high school football teams battle it out to become kings of the gridiron!  Games start at noon, and tickets can be purchased in advance for $10 at each of the participating schools or for $15 + fees online at as well as at the gate.
