ECKC Finds New Home In 2014

RENTON, Wash. – The 2014 WIAA Emerald City Kickoff Classic (ECKC) will move to Memorial Stadium at the foot of the iconic Space Needle in the heart of downtown Seattle, the Association announced Tuesday. Memorial will play host for the first time in the event’s 12-year history. Previous venues include Century Link, Roos Field and most recently, Husky Stadium.

The ECKC schedule will feature four matchups and will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 6. Participating teams for the ECKC and Emerald City Volleyball Invitational will be named at a later date.

“We are excited to continue the Kickoff Classic in Seattle for a second-straight year,” WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese said. “Navigating through professional, college and high school football schedules can be a major challenge. We are extremely grateful to the Seattle School District and their willingness to work with the Association to make sure this tradition continues in the Emerald City.”

Tickets for the Kickoff Classic are $15 for adults, $10 for students (with valid ASB card) and seniors (62 and over), and children under the age of five are free. Admission into the Volleyball Invitational is free.

“Seattle Public Schools is honored to be included in this great event,” said Eric McCurdy, Seattle Public Schools Athletic Director. “The student-athletes, coaches, parents and football fans will have a tremendous experience playing in the city of the Seattle at Memorial Stadium.”
