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.
