Super Bowl tribute flag football event to support Sierra Delta, Snoop Special Stars

Sierra Delta and Snoop Special Stars announced a joint Super Bowl 56 tribute flag football event, Stars and Stripes Bowl presented by North American Motor Car. 

This event will be comprised of two games, bringing together Snoop Special Stars (a team of LA-based kids with special needs finding joy and therapy through the game of football), Wounded Warriors of Sierra Delta, and NFL alumni.

Both games are set to take place on Feb. 8 from 5-8 p.m. at the Jackie Robinson field in the Rancho Cienega Sports Complex in Los Angeles, California on 5001 Obama Blvd.

“Playing flag football against NFL greats before the biggest football game of the year is a dream come true for veterans like myself,” said BJ Ganem, CEO of Sierra Delta: Service Dogs for Veterans. “Having the ability to share in the experience with the kids of Snoop Special Stars makes these flag football games even more special.”

The event, previously known as the Wounded Warrior Amputee Flag Football Team, will kick off with game one, featuring the kids of Snoop Special Stars.

Following game one, Wounded Warriors of Sierra Delta will take on the NFL alumni.

“Snoop Special Stars is excited to collaborate with Sierra Delta on this wonderful event to bring awareness and fun to both communities through sports,” said Nykauni Tademy, executive director of Snoop Special Stars. “We started this program in 2017 with the goal of changing the narrative when it comes to kids with special needs. Our motto is ‘EveryBODY Plays’ and we are proud to bring these needed resources to the inner city and beyond.”

Players of the Stars and Stripes Bowl will each receive custom branded football jerseys courtesy of North American Motor Car.

“North American Motor Car is thrilled to be supporting an event that brings together two amazing causes,” said North American Motor Car CEO Chris Bishop. “We love our veterans and as a salute to their service, we are proud to be a long-time sponsor of Sierra Delta. This event is the perfect opportunity to bring awareness to special needs kids and our veterans in a fun and exciting way.”

Confirmed guests scheduled to appear include Kurt Warner (HOF), Joe Delamiellure (HOF), Pat Williams, Byron Chamberlain, Jim McMahon, Kenny Mayne, Adam Carolla, and Zion Clark. 

Tickets can be purchased for $10 to attend the Stars and Stripes Bowl.
