For the first time in D.C. history, the winner of the D.C. Public Charter Schools football bracket will play against the winner of the D.C.

The championship football game will take place on Saturday, December 1 at 2:30 p.m. at Howard University’s Greene Memorial Stadium.

The District’s public, private, parochial, independent and charter school sports teams have the opportunity to compete against each other this fall as a result of DCSAA’s formation earlier this year by Mayor Gray and the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE).
