The 2023 Dave Spurlock Charleston County School District Football Jamboree is set for Friday, August 11, 2023, at the District 4 Regional Stadium in North Charleston. This will be the second year of the season-opening exhibition event, and the first one named after the late Dave Spurlock, a longtime coach in the Lowcountry and CCSD’s former athletic director.

Last year’s event was played at Robert E. Hayes Field at the District 2 Regional Stadium; the district’s goal is to rotate between the two stadiums every year.

The game clock will stop when a team scores, for a change of possession, and significant injuries. 

Gates will open for fans starting at 5:00 p.m., and the district’s clear bag policy will be enforced.

Tickets for the Dave Spurlock CCSD Football Jamboree are available for purchase for $6 a person online (children five years old and under are free) at this link. Attendees are asked to save their proof of purchase to their email accounts and present their digital tickets on their mobile devices at the gate. Fans can buy tickets with cash in person at the entrance on the day of the event. Proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit all 12 of the participating schools.

CCSD IDs and South Carolina High School League athletic passes for the 2023-2024 school year will be accepted at the gate.
