NEW YORK, NY – Sports Eleven05 presents the HBCU New York Football Classic, a collegiate football game featuring Howard and Morehouse College.

The game will be held annually, starting September 2022 at MetLife Stadium. This new sports tradition kicks off with Howard and Morehouse College renewing their historic rivalry between two premier institutions rich in heritage and tradition, on and off the field. The inaugural game is on Sept. 17, 2022, at 3:00 p.m.

Football fans, alumni and students along the east coast can reunite each year to enjoy the pageantry, excitement and camaraderie associated with the HBCU football experience. The game is certainly the highlight of the weekend, but also included are several ancillary events, such as the Alumni Mixer, Scholarship Gala, Pep Rally and Step Show, Pre-Game Show, and of course, The Fan Festival Tailgating.
