1875 is the year that football teams from Norwich Free Academy and New London High School began this historic rivalry.  Only 13 miles away from each other, this competitive game is met with anticipation every year.  Alternating locations between schools, large crowds full of excitement show up wearing either red and white, or green and gold.  School pride is evident in the stands.  Children, alumni, and athletes look forward to this day because of its monumental meaning.  This is the oldest high school rivalry in the United States.  This year’s game is at New London High School.  It is played on Thanksgiving Day beginning at 10am.
