The Hillside Community Shield, presented by Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, is an inaugural event of soccer matches to support the youth and families served by Hillside Family of Agencies. Similar to the Football Association Community Shield (formerly the Charity Shield), English football’s annual tradition, the Hillside Community Shield are highly competitive matches that promote both the game of soccer locally as well as raise funds to support community-based initiatives. Hillside Family of Agencies is celebrating a milestone anniversary this year and this event adds to the organization’s celebration of helping the community for 175 years.
The inaugural Hillside Community Shield will take place on September 11 at Sahlen’s Stadium to engage soccer fans, families and the community for an evening of festivities and spirited soccer competitions. The featured match at 7:30 p.m. will be Rochester Institute of Technology’s (RIT) men’s soccer team vs. the University of Rochester’s (UR) men’s soccer team for the Community Shield. The boy’s teams from Aquinas and McQuaid will compete in a preliminary match at 4:30 p.m. The event will feature a remembrance service, live entertainment, and other activities.
