Battle of the Birds

Battle of the Birds

Last year, thousands upon thousands of fans rallied to be among the first to enter Birds Nest Stadium for the inaugural Battle of the Birds when the Scott County Cardinals met the Great Crossing Warhawks on the gridiron for the first time.  It was a historic event destined to become a community tradition.

In this community, tradition runs deep and the Battle of the Birds rages on.  On Friday, September 18, 2020, the Warhawks and the Cardinals will leave it all on the field of Birds Nest Stadium during the second-annual Battle of the Birds.  In a community that unites during adversity, fans can come together for fellowship and football as Georgetown Community Hospital sponsors a drive-in theater presentation of the game in partnership with Georgetown-Scott County Parks and Recreation and Harmony Christian Church.

Arrive at the parking lot of Harmony Christian Church starting at 6:30pm on Friday, September 18 to watch the game on the big screen from your car and listen to the play-by-play commentary on the radio provided by Georgetown News-Graphic.  Fans must remain in their cars as a safety measure but are welcome to bring their favorite concessions and enjoy the game free of charge with their family.  Limited space available.

As previously announced, there will be no public ticket sales and no public entry at Birds Nest Stadium.  There is a limit of two fans per student participant, which includes the band, cheerleaders, dance team, and football players from both GCHS and SCHS.

The Battle of the Birds kicks off at 7:30pm.  There is a paid service available to watch at home as well. Find out details by visiting:

Our thanks to Georgetown Community Hospital, Georgetown-Scott County Parks and Recreation, and Harmony Christian Church for making the drive-in possible and allowing fans to come together to safely celebrate the Scott County Cardinals, the Great Crossing Warhawks, and the spirit of tradition.
