The WPIAL Football Season is played in the fall, with the first game of the season coming in as early as late-August. There are six classes of competition that are judged based on enrollment figures for each school (larger schools play in higher classes, smaller schools in lower classes). Each class has a varying amount of teams, and a varying amount of playoff games that lead to the WPIAL Championships.


Championship play begins in Week 10 of the WPIAL Football season. Playoffs will begin based on end-of-year standings and tie breakers. The tournament will culminate with four championships being played at Heinz Field (6A, 5A, 4A and 3A). The 2A and 1A Championships are played at Robert Morris University.

Congratulations to all of our 2017 Champions! Stay tuned for more information on the 2018 WPIAL Football Championships.
