Six high school football teams will travel to Ireland this week to compete in the "American Football Showcase" in Dublin. Two schools each from New Jersey, Georgia and Florida will travel across the Atlantic to play three games on Friday, September 2, which will be broadcast live on the NFHS Network.

The three high school games are part of the Aer Lingus College Football Classic, which hosts Georgia Tech and Boston College on Saturday, September 3.

American Football Showcase games:

  • 6 a.m. - Westminster School (Atlanta, Georgia) vs. Community School Naples (Naples, Florida)
  • 9 a.m. - Blessed Trinity (Atlanta, Georgia) vs. St. Peters Prep (Jersey City, New Jersey)
  • 12 p.m. - Marist School (Atlanta, Georgia) vs. Belen Jesuit (Miami, Florida)

Under the banner, ‘Much More than a Game’, the six high schools’ players, coaches, bands and cheerleaders will take part in a parade through the streets of Dublin that ends with a pep rally at Trinity College Dublin on Thursday, September 1. More than 3,000 visitors associated with the high school games are expected to travel to Dublin.
