The 2020 Congressional Football Game will be held virtually amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The biannual charity game, which brings together members of Congress, former NFL players and U.S. Capitol Police, is scheduled for Sept. 23 and will be held in a virtual Fantasy Football-style format.
For nearly two decades, members of Congress and former NFL players have teamed up to play against Capitol Police in a game of football to raise money for charitable causes around Washington, D.C.
“This charity game brings out the best of Congress -- Democratic and Republican members of Congress teaming up to raise money for good causes in Washington, D.C. I’d like to thank the former NFL players, U.S. Capitol Police, members and supporters who make this event happen year after year.”
Nevertheless, as we did last year on the gridiron, Democratic and Republican Congress Members will continue to work together to support the U.S. Capitol Police and fundraise for local charities virtually.
