An American football gathering Saturday is more than just a game of all stars.
Organizers said they have set up a late morning and afternoon full of other attractions, including a women’s contact football exhibition at 1 p.m. That match features the San Jose Olympian Goddesses and the Pérez Zeledón Angels. There also is a peewee exhibition by 3 to 10 year olds from 1:30 to 2 p.m.
There also is a youth and women’s training clinic for an hour starting at 11 a.m.
The climax is the Tropic Bowl V at 2:30 between the Costa Rican all stars and the semi-pro North East USA All*Stars.
The location is the Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo field near El Pueblo commercial center in Calle Blancos, San Jose.
