The 100 Black Men of Atlanta recently announced a new match-up and sponsorship extension for the 2011 Bank of America Atlanta Football Classic, which will return to Atlanta for the 23rd year on Sept. 24, 2011. For the first time in Classic history, the Florida A&M University Rattlers will take on the Southern University Jaguars. Also, Bank of America will extend its title sponsorship of this iconic event.
As one of the largest recurring sporting events in Georgia, bringing more than 100,000 visitors to the city of Atlanta, the Bank of America Atlanta Football Classic brings together Historically Black Colleges & University alumni, students and fans to celebrate community, education and tradition. Proceeds from the game support the 100 Black Men of Atlanta’s Project Success, the organization’s post-secondary preparation and tuition assistance program.
