The anticipation is growing for Friday’s 7 p.m. Detroit Public School League Football Championship Game between East English Village (6-0 league, 7-1 overall) and King (4-2 league, 5-3 overall) at Ford Field. Admission is $10 and gates open at 6 p.m.
With Coach Rod Oden’s Bulldogs riding a seven-game winning streak and Coach Dale Harvel’s Crusaders having won five in a row, fans are emotionally-charged and eager to see their team build on the momentum heading into next week’s start of the state playoffs.
This is the second year in a row that the PSL is hosting its championship game at the home of the Detroit Lions. And, while fans are encouraged to cheer on their team and enjoy the festive atmosphere, Ford Field officials request that fans strictly adhere to their policy of what is permitted inside the stadium.
*Please note that students may NOT wear spiked heels. Ford Field will not permit access onto the field if you are wearing spiked heels. Wedged or flat bottoms are permitted.
