Come Support on Turkey Day!

The Academic Athletic Association championship game on Thanksgiving Day is one of the oldest traditions in San Francisco high school sports and if you come to the event, you can also support

The San Francisco Section has agreed to help us with our ongoing fundraising effort by pledging a portion of the proceeds from the event, but it comes with a catch. For the site to get a donation, the attendance must be above the section’s three-year average (1,804).

So, we’re asking the San Francisco high school sports community and all of our fans – across all sports, schools, leagues and sections – to come out and be a part of the Thanksgiving Day tradition, which kicks off at 11 a.m. at Kezar Stadium. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students.

Mission and Lincoln, the two best teams in the AAA all season, will be on the field, and the San Francisco Section will also be honoring Polytechnic High School, a City power until it closed its doors in 1972, at halftime.

As always, thank you all for your support, and I hope to see you at Kezar on Turkey Day.

    Very happy to hear that the AAA PUBLIC schools are willing to contribute, how about the private schools?
    Have they kicked in any $$$. Judging by the blogging, the private school followers should be donating in mass (pun intended).

      JB You should try the same thing at the Bruce Mahoney game. See if you can get some of that gate money to keep SanFran Preps going for a long time.

    • Jon Goldsmith nice pun. I am a native San Franciscan who now resides down the penisula. I stumbled across this site by accident in September and have enjoyed the “friendly” jousting with my fellow WCAL brethren. Although we went to different schools, there is a mutual respect . I will contribute now and encourage my fellow WCAL posters to do the same.

    Did you find out what the attendance was yet?

    • Just got the word today. 1,500 people showed up on Thursday.

      • Is that good? What is the usual attendance for this game?

        • I think it’s bad because the average attendance is about 1,800. I don’t know how 1800 can be the average attendance for the past 3 years when there was 500 people last year.

          • They said there were about 1,300 people last year.

            • No way there was 200 more people this year compared to last. Compare the pictures. the stands looked packed this year, while last year the stands were empty.

              • Well, I guess they inflate the attendance numbers when SI plays SHC for football because they claim 13,000 at AT&T Park and 8,000 for the Bruce Mahoney. I doubt there was 13,000 people there. If there was 13,000, a 3rd of the stadium would’ve been full, only 20% was filled. Maybe 5 or 6,000 for the Bruce Mahoney, but they claim 8,000. The 1,500 attendance could be accurate.
