Southwestern College to host 2014 CIF Football Championships at DeVore Stadium

Southwestern College has reached an agreement with the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) to host three days of championship football games this winter in the newly renovated DeVore Stadium on the Southwestern College Chula Vista Campus.

Southwestern College is honored to have solidified a partnership with the CIF that will place six CIF Football Championship games in DeVore Stadium and will give us the opportunity to highlight sports to our South Bay community.

Traditionally held at Qualcomm Stadium in Mission Valley, these CIF Championship games will move to the new state-of-the-art facility that provides all the amenities needed to host such a prestigious event.

“We’re excited to have the type of venue and opportunity for the CIF championship games to have a great experience,” said Terry Davis, Southwestern College Athletic Director and Dean of the School of Health, Exercise Science, Athletics and Applied Technology.

This is the very first partnership between Southwestern College and the CIF. One game will be played on Friday, November 28, two games on Friday, December 5, and three games on Saturday, December 6.

The agreement pays Southwestern College $53,000 to host the games and will be on the November 12 Governing Board Meeting agenda for approval.

Other notes: DeVore Stadium’s recent renovations are part of the $389 Million Proposition R Bond passed in 2008.
