We are pleased to announce that The National Midwest Gridiron Classic is back for the 11th straight year and now powered by Lou Fusz Athletic. The National Midwest Gridiron Classic is an elite post-season youth football tournament that has been created to provide a platform for pure (non-all-star) youth football teams to compete at a national level in a well-organized and professional manner. The series will crown a true National Champion at every age level from 6U–14U. This is the largest post-season football tournament in the Midwest. Over the past 10 years, there have been over 150 teams from Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Kansas, Colorado, Minnesota, and Nebraska. We feature play by play announcing, music, and individual awards. Participating teams are guaranteed 2 games. Come to St. Louis and compete against some of the best teams and teams you haven't heard of. Win or lose, you will have a memorable experience in St. Louis.
Tournament t-shirts will be available for the price of $ 10.00 per child and $ 15.00 per adult.
If family and supporters choose to pay admission the day of the event, they will be asked to pay $8.00 gate fees per adult and $5.00 per child.
