With construction at stadium facilities not completed, the annual Richland One Sportsarama will be switching venues this season.
The Sportsarama will be held at Benedict College’s Charles Johnson Stadium on Aug. 11 beginning at 6 p.m. The eight-team jamboree, which is usually is held at Memorial Stadium, was planned to be held at District Stadium at Keenan but construction won’t be done until the end of the month at both Keenan and Memorial Stadiums.

Plans are for the facilities to be ready for games on Aug. 30-31 with CA Johnson hosting Fox Creek at Keenan on Aug. 30 . The first game at Memorial Stadium will be A.C. Flora against Columbia on Aug. 31. Eau Claire will host Wagener-Salley at Keenan on Aug. 31.
