Rose Bowl to host Southern Section D1 championship football game

The Rose Bowl opens its stadium as the venue for the 2022 Southern Section Division 1 High School Football Championship game. It will be played on Friday, November 25 at 7:30 p.m. It will be the first time in 78 years that a Southern Section final will be played at the Rose Bowl.

“It’s going to be a great event,” said Rob Wigod, Southern Section Commissioner.

It took two years of negotiation and brainstorming to build what Wigod says was a “true partnership” with the Rose Bowl.

It coincides with the Rose Bowl celebrating its 100th anniversary, the announcement of the inaugural class of the California High School Football Hall of Fame, and the unveiling of the new Hall of Fame facility at the Rose Bowl.

Parking is $10, and suites and club seats are expected to be made available. A special field decoration is created. Bally Sports will televise the game.

It’s a major upgrade for the Southern Section, which held last season’s finals at Long Beach City College due to COVID-19 restrictions. Previous championship games in recent years have been played at Cerritos College.

Last year’s final between Santa Ana Mater Dei and Anaheim Servite sold out faster, with around 9,600 tickets, than any other event since a basketball semifinal was held at the USC Galen Center in 2017.

St. John Bosco and Mater Dei are favored to reach the final in the fall.
