Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg, Florida. The gates open at 2pm.

For full event details, visit shrinegame.com.

General Admission tickets are $15 each but not required for kids under age 2.

The game was first created by the Shriners in 1925 at San Francisco’s Ewing Field. The East-West Shrine Game was the country’s first college all-star football game. From that very first game, held the day after Christmas, they raised $25,000. The game supports Shriners Hospitals for Children with its mission to help children in need of expert medical care. More than 1 million children have benefited from the Shriners Hospitals which provide them and their families with hope and healing, regardless of the families’ ability to pay for services. In 1935 future President Gerald Ford played in the game. In 2012 the game was moved to Tropicana Field in St Petersburg.

Another benefit is that usually over 300 NFL scouts and agents attend the practices throughout the week as well as the game on Saturday. On average, more than 265 East-West Shrine Game alumni are on NFL teams each season. About 90 players from last year’s game signed with professional teams and more than 70 of them made the final NFL rosters.
