The BC Lions will be hosting their annual Salute to Amateur Football Night this Saturday, October 6 at BC Place when they face the Calgary Stampeders with an altered format for the amateur football aspect of the entertainment compared to previous years.

The traditional half-time show that features several amateur football teams playing mini-games on the field will now be taking place as part of the pre-game due to Wendy's Kick for a Million being scheduled for half-time.

The teams are expected to be on the field by the time doors open at 6 pm so make sure you get in your seats early and cheer on the young football stars of tomorrow.

The teams that will be taking part in this year's festivities all come from the BC Community Football Association ranks with Langley, New Westminster, North Surrey, Prince George, Westside, Richmond and the GSL all being represented with clubs taking part in the event.

Kickoff for the game between the Lions and Stampeders is 7 pm. For ticket information, please visit
