7-on-7: Football fever never stops in College Station

7 on 7 FB Ad2In Texas, football often is called a religion. That may – or may not – be an exaggeration, but in College Station, football is definitely a year-round sport.

While Texas A&M and our local high schools are the focus of our football passions in the fall and spring, the game doesn’t take a summer vacation in Bryan-College Station.

If you don’t believe me, venture out to Veterans Park and Athletic Complex today through Sunday, when the City of College Station and its partners are hosting the Adidas Texas 7-on-7 Championships and the PrimeTime Sports Tournament of Champions.

The two events are bringing a combined 224 football teams and their fans to town for four days of high-level, shorts-and-t-shirts football. We expect more than 8,000 visitors — players, coaches, fans, family members and others — to make an estimated impact of more than $2 million to our local economy.

But the most exciting part may be the chance to see all the future college and professional football stars enjoying Aggieland. We invite you to come out and show your support for these great events that showcase all the great things our community has to offer.

The 7-on-7 events also give us a chance to show off our new synthetic turf fields and lighting upgrades at Veterans Park, which were financed by Hotel Occupancy Tax revenue to help attract such large-scale affairs.
