2020 Montana East-West Shrine Game Called Off

Due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, the Executive Board of the Montana East-West Shrine Game made the difficult decision to call off the 2020 Montana East-West Shrine Game scheduled for July 18.

In a conference call held Wednesday, April 22, board members expressed their concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, its influence on everyone’s lives, and the impact it has made on student-athlete’s preparations for the Montana Shrine Game. 

The decision was also based on the latest information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and directives by the State of Montana.

Board members contacted the athletes via phone on Thursday, April 23 to inform them of the decision.  Efforts will be made in the coming weeks to find new ways to honor the best players Montana prep football has to offer.

As one of the oldest Shrine Games in the nation, this was a difficult decision by the Board, but made in order to safeguard the health of the student-athletes, everyone involved in the Montana East-West Shrine Game, and the community of fans, friends, and supporters of the annual game.

Our cause is to provide needed medical services at Shriners Hospitals for Children to those in need, and the Board determined that the risks of COVID-19 do not align with the safety of the student-athletes and the public.

The game will be resumed in Billings in the Summer of 2021 for an event that will bring Montanans from across the state together again.
