FAMU Tampa Classic

The Bay Area is preparing to welcome a new classic game.  No, it’s not the Florida Classic — it’s the FAMU Tampa Classic.  The Florida A & M University (FAMU) Rattlers and the Marching 100 will face off with the Tennessee State University (TSU) Tigers and the Aristocrat of Bands.  The two haven’t met to play in a classic in several years since the dissolution of the once popular Atlanta Classic. The FAMU Tampa Classic will debut on Saturday -September 16th at the Raymond James Stadium.  Tickets are currently on sale via Ticketmaster.  

Tampa previously hosted the Florida Classic and has been yearning to get a classic back in its city.  One strong advocate is County Commissioner Les Miller.  In a recent meeting, Commissioner Miller spoke on the importance of this upcoming game.  “Hillsborough County and this city miss the vibrancy that the classic once brought here.  I am so glad to see the FAMU Tampa Classic debut here and I am going to do all that I can to make sure that it is a success.” FAMU partnered with Hillsborough County, the Tampa Bay Sports Commission, the  City of Tampa and other entities to make this classic a reality.  Athletic Director Milton Overton is already looking into the future. “This first game is going to set us up for greatness.  In order to build the revenue needed to support our programs, we have to explore ownership.  This game is certainly a step in the right direction,” says Overton. 

Fans from both FAMU and TSU can look forward to a host of events around the game.  There will be a team luncheon at the downtown Hilton; a golf tournament; an alumni association boat ride and several receptions.  The game will kick off at 6:00 pm on Saturday, September 16th.  Tickets start start at $29.  For more information, please visit www.tampafootballclassic.com.
