Renewing a Dallas Football Tradition

 Posted on: August 21 2019
With the school year getting started for many across the country, the Dallas Sports Commission is gearing up for the Cotton Bowl Stadium Prep Showcase. The 4th annual event will pin eight of the top Dallas-area 6-A football programs against each other. It’s known that Texans love their high school football and this Showcase highlights that love. Seven of the eight teams competing this year made it to the playoffs in 2018. One of the most highly anticipated games for the 2019 season is when Denton Guyer takes on Cedar Hill. Both teams are ranked in the Top 10 of The Dallas Morning News’ pre-season All-Area Top 25. The Cotton Bowl Stadium Prep Showcase happens September 6 and 7. Good luck to all the teams and the Dallas Sports Commission. View full press release from Dallas Sports.

Event Manager Blog has a few suggestions on how to bring in more sponsors in a unique way. Raise your game.
