This unmatched competition remains one of the most anticipated events held annually the night before the Lombardi Trophy is won. It is also the first and only charity celebrity basketball game to have ever become officially sanctioned by the National Football League. Now independently produced exclusively by Jam Sports Productions, Gridiron Hoops XV is where pro football players and A-list celebrities showcase their skills on the hardwood.
Gridiron Hoops XV is proud to take place at Xavier University of Louisiana, the nation's only historically Black, Catholic University, during Black History Month as the game celebrates its own history making achievements. Ticketholders will experience special presentations, an unparalleled slam dunk contest, interactive games, opportunities to meet celebrities, get their autographs and take pictures, as well as eat good food, and hear great jazz bands.
The event continues to be a fundraiser to raise awareness, and share information on protecting children and teens who have suffered from abuse, neglect, homelessness, violence, instability, and more. The game benefits the non-profit organization, Juli's Kids Motivated to Succeed (Juli's Kids). This year, youths cared for by the Department of Children and Family Services of Louisiana (New Orleans Division) (DCFS) and Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans will be able to come to the game as the event's true MVP's (Most Valuable People).
Gridiron Celebrity Hoops is produced by Jam Sports Productions, LLC and presented by my Oh! spot, a premium organic food and beverage company. Sponsored in part by Under Armour. To assist the community, Budget Mobile, in conjunction with Lifeline.gov, a government benefit program that provides free phones and free cell minutes, will be outside of the arena all day to provide wireless services to qualifying low-income consumers.
