Chicago Football Classic

Soldier Field, 1410 Museum Campus, Chicago, Illinois

The Chicago Football Classic Scholarship Fund, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support academic achievement, promote post-secondary education, encourage cultural excellence and showcase the spirit, energy and tradition of America’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

The founders shared a simple, yet clear and powerful vision: to encourage African American youth to achieve their personal best in school and beyond by empowering them with the knowledge, tools and resources essential to accomplishing life-long goals.
Today, through the vehicle of an HBCU football game, the CFC’s annual signature event at Soldier Field is the backdrop to realize our objectives through several initiatives: The Chicago Football Classic Scholarship Fund; The CFC/HBCU College Fair and Empowerment Summit and Adopt A School Program.

Cost of Admission: $18, 25, 35 & 45
