RALEIGH, NC (August 24, 2018) – Wake County Public Schools Athletics has announced a two-year community partnership with Capital Automotive Group for the start of the 2018 High School Football season! In addition to providing support for the district’s athletic programs, Friday, August 17 marked the kick off of the first ever 2018 Live Streaming Tour, increasing accessibility to more WCPSS Athletics football action than ever before. The week one match up featured Wake Forest High School at Millbrook High School, one of the most anticipated match-ups of the season. This Friday night will headline Panther Creek at Leesville Road. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00pm.
“Being a part of the community since 1985, I feel that it’s really important to try and strengthen the community when we can,” explained Tim Michael, President of Capital Automotive Group. “When we found out that we could contribute to the success of local student athletes with this sponsorship we knew that this was the perfect avenue to give back.”
As a strong supporter of education and interscholastic athletic programs, the 2018 Live Streaming Tour will include a series of select football games, one game per week, to be determined by the district. The games will be broadcast on the WCPSS Athletics website, wakecountyathletics.com.
In addition, Capital Automotive Group aspires to highlight and recognize their new community of student-athletes for their hard work and success this sports season by funding a scholarship program. Specific activations and details of these campaigns are scheduled to launch this fall.
“Wake County Athletics is enthusiastic about our new community partnership with Capital Automotive Group,” explained District Athletic Director, Deran Coe. “With their support, we will be able to provide new and exciting opportunities for student-athletes, coaches and families within the district.”
With this investment, Wake County Public Schools Athletics news and information will remain easily accessible through their district-wide, multi-media platform, wakecountyathletics.com.
