The Circle City Classic is a joint collaboration between Indiana Black Expo. Inc. and the Indiana Sports Corporation. The net proceeds from the Classic help fund scholarships and support youth initiatives for each organization. Since 1984, over 1 million dollars have been awarded to deserving Indiana natives who pursue higher education.

On October 13, 1984, the Circle City Classic was born. Jerry Rice and the Mississippi State Delta Devils battled the Grambling State Tigers and legend Coach Eddie Robinson. Entering its third decade, the Classic has evolved from just a football game into a well recognized and well respected organization with year round programs designed to enhance the mental and physical development of our youth. Some of these programs include year round College Readiness Workshops, Challenge of Champions, Miss Circle City Classic Coronation, Classic Youth Football and Cheerleading Clinic, as well as the scholarship program.

The goal of the Classic is to honor the legacy of Rev. Charles Williams by continuing to provide opportunities for youth as well as supporting educational achievement and promoting cultural excellence in the community.
