Friday Night Football 4 Fort Mac cancelled

Organizers thank those who committed their support

As participation would be a direct violation of league bylaws the Calgary Colts Junior Football Club are unable to take part in the Friday Night Football 4 Fort Mac fundraising event Aug. 5th in Lacombe.

The Lacombe Athletic Park Association has made the difficult decision to cancel Friday Night Football 4 Fort Mac.

“The Lacombe Athletic Parks Association wants to thank all the companies and organizations who had committed their support for this event, and apologizes for any inconvenience resulting from this difficult decision,” said Darrin Thompson, marketing director for the Lacombe Athletic Park Association.

At this time the Prairie Football Conference has deemed that the Calgary Colts Junior Football Association would face fines and possible further discipline for violation of league bylaws and thus are unable to participate in Friday’s event.

“The Lacombe Athletic Park Association had been left no choice but to cancel our upcoming Friday Night Football 4 Fort Mac event,” said Thompson.

Lacombe Athletic Park Association Chairman Murray Cunningham added, “Our vision and mandate is to bring the best possible sports experience to MEGlobal Athletic Park including high caliber junior football. Although disappointing, we respect the PFC’s decision and look forward to building a stronger relationship with the league, hopefully including a couple of PFC sanctioned exhibition games in 2017.”
