Two high school football state champions this season will celebrate on the field at New Britain’s Veterans Memorial Stadium.

The CIAC announced today it has chosen the New Britain stadium to host two of the four high school state championship football games this December. Trumbull High School’s McDougall Stadium will host the other two games.

“The CIAC’s goal is always to find venues for our state championships that match the level of work and commitment the teams have put in to get there, and we are confident these sites rise to that level,” said CIAC Associate Executive Director and Football Committee liaison Gregg Simon. “We explored and considered lot of different options for these four football finals, and we know these sites have the facility structures, staffing, and commitment to make these events a success.”

The four games will be played Saturday, December 14 with tentative start times of 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

New Britain has hosted at least one football championship game every year since 2014.
