TSSAA DII-AAA State Championship Details

  • Athletics

McCallie football will compete for its third consecutive TSSAA DII-AAA State Championship in our city, Chattanooga, TN.

Date: Thursday, December 2, 2021
Time: 7:00 PM EST
Where: Finley Stadium 

We hope that thousands of McCallie and GPS families and fans will come to the game and cheer on the Big Blue in person. It’s a blue out, so wear as much blue as possible as we fill Finley Stadium with a sea of roaring blue. We want our team to benefit from a distinct and loud home field and hometown advantage. McCallie fans will be seated in the South stands (the home side).

Tickets for the Blue Cross Bowl are $12.00 per day if purchased in advance on GoFan, or $15.00 per day if purchased with cash at the gate. NOTE: Please review the stadium policies, including their clear bag policy here

Game Day Experience

It’s not just the game that will be exciting! There’s a fun-filled pregame fan experience in the First Horizon Pavilion starting at 5:00 p.m. There will be food trucks, inflatables, our pep band and cheerleaders, face painting, music, tailgating and more. There will be something for fans of all ages and a fun time to enjoy fellowship.  

Food Trucks:
Street Quesadillas
Chicken with Bones
Naked River Brewing is also right by the stadium.
