The 76th Annual Montana East-West Shrine Game will be played in Butte this Saturday night.

The Montana Shrine Game is the premier all-star game in Montana and has a long history of distinguished players and coaches. It is also one of the oldest high school football games in America. Every year since 1947, Montana’s finest high school football players are selected to compete in the game to raise money and awareness of the care available at the Shriner’s Hospital in Spokane Washington.

The experts at the Shriner’s Hospital provide orthopedic and burn care regardless of a family’s ability to pay. Over the last decade, the Montana Game has raised over 1 Million dollars for the hospital, making the Montana Game the top high school Shrine Game in the nation for hospital donations.

The game will be played on the campus of Butte High School, at Naranche Stadium. Doors will open at 5pm, and kickoff is scheduled for 7pm. You can purchase your tickets online through the Butte Civic Center, HERE. Or can purchase them at the game.
