2021 BB&T Excessive Faculty Soccer Jamboree canceled

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Laney High School Sports Director Fred Lynch confirmed Tuesday that the 35th BB&T High School Football Jamboree, scheduled for August 13, has been canceled.

The scrimmage among local high schools usually takes place at Legion Stadium and is a fundraiser for student scholarships.

This is the third year in a row that the annual kickoff event for the high school football season has been canceled.

In 2019, the jamboree was canceled for the first time in 33 years due to bad weather and dangerous field conditions.

The COVID-19 pandemic prevented the event from taking place in 2020.
