2015 NCHSAA Football Championship Game Times Set

CHAPEL HILL – Interim commissioner Que Tucker of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association announced today the game times for the eight NCHSAA football championship games for the 2015 season, which will be played at three locations.

BB&T Field in Winston-Salem, Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh and Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill will be the sites of the championship contests.

Kenan Stadium returns to the rotation after a one-year absence.  Kenan had hosted at least one football championship game since 1989 as the NCHSAA made a push for neutral sites, including collegiate facilities, for many of its state championships.  But Kenan was not available in 2014 due to extensive work on the field.

Kenan will host two games, including one on Friday night, December 11 and one on Saturday, December 12, while three games will be played at BB&T Field and Carter-Finley Stadium, all on December 12.

Kenan Stadium - Chapel Hill

Games at Kenan will include the 3-A championship at 7:35 pm on Friday and then the championship game for the 3-AA bracket on Saturday at 12:05 p.m.

Carter-Finley Stadium - Raleigh

The schedule at Carter-Finley will have Saturday games starting with the 4-AA championship at 12:05 p.m., followed by the 2-A final at 4:05 p.m. and the 2-AA championship at 8:05 p.m.

BB&T Field - Winston-Salem

At BB&T Field, the Saturday games will start with the 1-AA contest at 12:05 pm, the 1-A final at 4:05 p.m. and then the 4-A championship at 8:05 p.m.
