The WIAA has announced the creation of the Emerald City Kickoff Classic and the eight teams that have accepted invitations to participate in the Inaugural event.

The Inaugural Emerald City Kickoff Classic, managed and operated by the WIAA, will showcase some of Washington’s best high school football teams and will be played Sept. 6 at Seahawk Stadium.

The idea behind the Emerald City Kickoff Classic is to create an annual community event that celebrates the start of the school year by producing marquee football match-ups not possible during the regular season.

The 2003 Emerald City Kickoff Classic will feature O’Dea vs. Capital, Elma vs. Tumwater, Snohomish vs. Kamiakin and Skyline vs. Woodinville.
