DIAA Football Championships date, site set!!

Posted on 12-19-2020

Just under 18 hours to game time!  We wanted to let you know that the team will be leaving the school at about 900am on Saturday.  They will be escorted by emergency vehicles north on the highway through Georgetown.  Last time we did this in 2018 …

There will be a split-admission doubleheader for the DIAA Football Championships on Saturday.

Both games will take place at Dover High School, with the stadium being cleared between contests.  Each player will have the ability to purchase two tickets, which will be $7 for the championship games.  There will be no tickets made available to the general public, due to the DIAA’s social distancing protocols.

Division 1 will go first at noon, as No. 2 Middletown takes on No. 4 Sussex Central.  The Cavaliers have played in 7 of the past 10 state championship games, but have not claimed the title since 2012.  Sussex Central won their only championship in 2018.


At 4:30, Division 2 takes to Senators Stadium, as No. 1 Archmere takes on No. 2 Howard. Howard is looking to defend its state title, and claim its third crown in five years.   Archmere is looking for its first title since 1982.
