FAU Stadium to Possibly Host 3 High School Football Games

FAU and the Gridiron Challenge Foundation, a high school football promotional company, are close to a contract deal that would allow six Palm Beach County high schools to play at FAU Stadium this fall.

Gridiron Challenge Event Director Billy Fleming said Thursday his company and FAU had a “slight miscommunication” during contract negotiations, which has delayed the official announcement of three Sept. 8 games to be hosted by FAU. The tentative schedule would start at noon, with West Boca Raton vs. Palm Beach Gardens, followed by Boynton Beach-Spanish River at 3 p.m. and Palm Beach Central-Lake Worth at 6.

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

+1. My wife went to Gardens High School, so she would want to go to the Gardens game.

Another great idea to bring notoriety to the school, the stadium and this could be a great recruiting tool for us

For once I agree with 40, more bad press and bad decisions by FAU.

GO OWLS!

The outcome is bad but the reaction from FAU was this company setting up this event was wanting to profit with out justifying all the cost. I think FAU could set up an event by themselves to have high school teams play down here. Especially recently how there isn't much money to shell out for things and the attitude of the public recently is to crucify State entities, "how dare they frivolously spend tax dollars on things", FAU just played the safe card. It goes to show that this company that was setting it up was all about turning a buck they opened their mouths before things were finalized and hoped FAU would bite for the cost. The outcome is bad press for FAU even though there wasn't an agreement or contract for services.
