CMS football teams will play on two Saturdays this season

Mecklenburg County high school football teams usually play on Fridays. This season, the district has scheduled games on back-to-back Saturdays in September.

There will be eight games played on Saturday Sept. 11 starting at 7 p.m., and there will be five more played on Sept. 18. Those games will start at 8 p.m.

The games were moved in deference to two major Jewish holidays. Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset Sept. 8 and runs through nightfall on Sept. 10. Yom Kippur starts at sunset Sept. 17 and runs through nightfall of Sept. 18.

Some county teams will play on those two Fridays but will be playing on the road at out-of-county opponents.

“For the past three years, the district has made a commitment to the Jewish religious holidays,” said Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ system athletics director Vicki Hamilton. “So we were able to move the Friday, September 10th games to Saturday at 7. For the September 18th games, we did everything we could to move games as late as we could in the evening.”

Hamilton said CMS didn’t move the games to Monday Sept. 20 because it usually reserves Mondays as an alternative playing date if regularly scheduled games are postponed due to inclement weather.

So CMS football teams can have mandatory practice on Thanksgiving Day for teams still in the play-offs but can't play on FRIDAY NIGHT during Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur? The vast majority of these athletes have no idea what these holidays are even about! Go sit in the corner CMS.

Eid ul-Fitr is on September the 10th this year and strangely I don't see CMS moving games for that.

Eid ul-Adha is on November 17th this year, will CMS basketball games be moved to accommodate that?

What about the Islamic New Year on December 7th? Do you think games will be moved to accommodate that? I love how CMS is making strides to be more inclusive different religions and not playing favorites. (sarcasm)

The percentage of Jewish students is very small in CMS, I think we have more Buddhist students. Why not celebrate Buddha's birthday?

Football is the game which is played with the ball on the rectangular grass. It is played between two teams of eleven players. In this game the goalkeeper is the only player who is allowed to use his hands to propel the ball and the remaining players use their feet. The main purpose of the game is to score points by advancing the ball into the opposing goal. The team that scores the most goals by the end of the match wins.
