Sierra Delta and Snoop Special Stars today announced a joint Super Bowl 56 tribute flag football event, Stars and Stripes Bowl presented by North American Motor Car. This inspirational event will be comprised of two games, bringing together Snoop Special Stars (a squad of LA-based kids with special needs finding joy and therapy through the game of football), Wounded Warriors of Sierra Delta, and NFL alumni. Both games are set to take place on Tuesday, Feb 8, 2022, from 5pm to 8pm at the Jackie Robinson field in the Rancho Cienega Sports Complex in Los Angeles, California on 5001 Obama Blvd.
“Playing flag football against NFL greats before the biggest football game of the year is a dream come true for veterans like myself,” says BJ Ganem, CEO of Sierra Delta: Service Dogs for Veterans. “Having the ability to share in the experience with the kids of Snoop Special Stars makes these flag football games even more special.”
The event, previously known as the Wounded Warrior Amputee Flag Football Team, will kick off with game one, featuring the kids of Snoop Special Stars as they showcase their unbreakable spirit and drive on the field. Following game one, Wounded Warriors of Sierra Delta will take on legends of the NFL alumni in what has now become a coveted tradition.
“Snoop Special Stars is excited to collaborate with Sierra Delta on this wonderful event to bring awareness and fun to both communities through sports,” says Nykauni Tademy, Executive Director of Snoop Special Stars. “We started this program in 2017 with the goal of changing the narrative when it comes to kids with special needs. Our motto is ‘EveryBODY Plays’ and we are proud to bring these needed resources to the inner city and beyond.”
Players of the Stars and Stripes Bowl will each receive custom branded football jerseys, thanks to presenting sponsor North American Motor Car, a company created to help make people’s automotive dreams come true, but more importantly, to celebrate the freedom of America and support those who have protected it.
“North American Motor Car is thrilled to be supporting an event that brings together two amazing causes,” commented North American Motor Car CEO Chris Bishop. “We love our veterans and as a salute to their service, we are proud to be a long-time sponsor of Sierra Delta. This event is the perfect opportunity to bring awareness to special needs kids and our veterans in a fun and exciting way.”

Tickets can be purchased for $10 to attend the Stars and Stripes Bowl but are extremely limited due to current capacity restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
