The 2019 North-South Soccer Classic, hosted by the South Carolina High School Soccer Coaches Association, will be held at T.L. Hanna High School in Anderson, S.C., on Saturday, June 22.
This is the third consecutive year that the "Electric City" has been the site of this event at Memorial Stadium's Fraser Field on the campus of T.L. Hanna High School and the third time overall (2007). The North-South Soccer Classic was founded in 1989 and has been staged every Summer since then for the boys' all-star game while the girls' contest has been played annually since its inception in 1997.
Admission is $10 at the gate and souvenir programs will be available for $5. Players will report on Friday, June 21 for an action-packed day that features a luncheon sponsored by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, team and individual pictures being taken at the field, a practice session for each team and, finally, a banquet that evening honoring the eight coaches and 72 graduated senior players.
In the boys' series, the North leads the South 15-11-4, but the South has captured six of the past nine meetings which includes a pair of draws. The South tallied a 5-2 victory last year in Anderson. In the girls' series, the South holds a slim advantage at 10-8-4 and has won four of the past eight contests including a 1-0 victory last year.
