Bernie Bowl was created in memory of SFU Quarterback Bernd Dittrich who passed away on November 11, 2009. The first annual Bernie Bowl was created in 2011 by SFU football alumnus, Mark Bailey. The event was established to honor Bernd’s memory and support SFU athletics in his name.
The event consists of a touch football tournament where all are welcome to play. Teams are randomly drawn and each team competes for a chance to hoist the Bernie Cup! Generally each team consists of 8-10 people and the number of teams depends on the number of registered participants. Each team is guaranteed two games minimum. A pass, punt, and kick competition is also held, and participants compete to win prizes. We encourage SFU alumni, and all football communities to come out and tackle some fun for a great cause!
Registration is $20.00 and all proceeds go directly to Bernd Dittrich SFU Athletic Scholarship. We hope to see you November. 11th 2016!
