The Maine Shrine Lobster Bowl Classic, played each summer at the end of July is in its 26th consecutive year with Lobster Bowl XXVI. This year's game will be on Saturday, July 18th at Waterhouse Field in Biddeford. Kick-off is at 6:00pm
This High School Senior All-Star football game is a Kora Shrine sponsored event where 100% of the net proceeds from the game are for the benefit of the 22 Shrine Hospitals for Children across the US, Canada, and Mexico. The Maine Shrine Lobster Bowl Game has been created to raise money and to help make the public aware of the expert orthopedic and burn care facilities available, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay, to children who desperately need this specialized care.
This East vs. West match-up, brings over 160 student athletes and coaches from all over the state together to help produce what is considered the premier High School sporting event held in Maine. All participants commit to a week long training camp where they make new friends and more importantly, learn why we play the game…so ”Strong Legs Run … So that Weak Legs May Walk”.
The student athletes are high school seniors who have just graduated and are about to enter college. They are nominated to play in this prestigious game by their coaches and selected by a committee from the Maine Athletics Association.
