DeKalb and NIU Welcomes State Football Playoff Teams


Support our local state champions as they celebrate the 2019 Illinois High School Association football season as it culminates in DeKalb with the IHSA State Football Championships November 29 & 30 at NIU’s Huskie Stadium. Cheer on the 16 teams as they play for their respective division titles.

The State Final hosts will once again have a Spirit Zone adjacent to Northern Illinois University Huskie Stadium with tents for each competing team, and a general tent for all fans. (see chart)

Local businesses welcome football fans and teams. Visit Fatty’s Pub and The Junction Eating Place before or after the game. For a fast-food option, visit the ‘Beef Shack’ located near the stadium.
