Chicago Football Classic Scholarship Fund, Inc., co-founders, Everett Rand and Larry Huggins, joined Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot, representatives from Chicago Public Schools, Howard University and Hampton University and event sponsors, to announce the 22nd annual Chicago Football Classic (CFC), which will take place on Saturday, September 14 at Soldier Field.
For the first time, the college fair will include a career component for Chicago-area youth produced by the City Colleges of Chicago and the Chicago Public Schools. The college and career fair will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. This expansion will allow CFC to strengthen the enrichment of the various programs offered to students interested in going directly into the workforce after high school. Following the college and career fair will be a battle of the bands between various Chicago Public Schools’ and suburban bands with the iconic football game between Howard University and Hampton University kicking off on the field at 3:30 p.m.
