Columbia at Fordham

2009 “Liberty Cup” Football Game

The “Liberty Cup” is awarded annually to the winner of the Fordham-Columbia football game. The trophy was dedicated in 2002, a year after the Columbia-Fordham game was postponed on Sept. 11, 2001, to honor the alumni of both universities and all victims killed on 9/11/01. There are few better ways to celebrate those lives and our American spirit than to attend a NYC College Football game on a beautiful Fall evening, demonstrating our strength and resiliency.

On Saturday, September 19, 2009, at 6:00pm, Fordham will play host to cross town rival Columbia University in the annual “Liberty Cup” game. Fordham University, H.E.A.R.T. 9/11, the NYPD & FDNY Football Teams and Academics in Motion will host and make available Free tickets to the non-profits that grew from 9/11/01. A representative from each organization will be recognized on the field prior to the game and their logo will be displayed on the scoreboard screen during the game. High school aged young adults will have the opportunity to be on the field for the pre-game warm ups, interacting with the Fordham coaching staff. Please join us for a great game and tailgate party.

Organizations have two options for game tickets, the first is to request tickets for just the game, and the other option is for the first 500 people to join the NYPD & FDNY football teams for a tailgate barbecue prior to the game. Tailgate tickets are limited to 500 people on a first come first serve basis and will need to commit in advance.

NYPD & FDNY Tailgate Party begins at 3:00pm (Game Tickets and Tailgate Passes required)

Tickets will be distributed prior to the game at the tailgate area.

If your group is interested in attending the game and/or participating in the pre-game tailgate party, please email jpresbrey@academicsinmotion.org with the following information:

Number of tickets requested

Either YES if interested in tailgate prior to game or NO if you are just coming for the game

Who extended the invitation to you or your group

How you will travel to the game: car, bus or public transportation?

E-mail address and name of primary contact person for the group

The deadline for tickets is Monday, September 14, 2009.

Once confirmed, you will receive an e-mail from our committee with further information regarding the game.

Please note that if you plan on driving your own vehicle, Fordham security charges $10 for parking. Buses can drop attendees of by the tailgate area and pick them up after the game.
