Crusaders Wait 43 Years for First Real Homecoming!

Every fall, schools from Washington, DC, to California call their former students back to campus to reunite the far-flung members of their extended families. It is a tradition called Homecoming. Tampa Catholic has celebrated Homecoming since its early football teams began playing in the 1960's. Unfortunately, the team was never able to play its Homecoming game, or any games at home. Even without a stadium on the campus, the Crusader faithful made wherever they played their home games their field and Crusader Spirit was famous in the Tampa area.

After forty years of nomadic existence, the modern era of Crusader Homecoming began in 2005 when Tampa Catholic played it first home game and Homecoming in their new stadium. This marked the culmination of a nearly twenty year quest to obtain permission from the City of Tampa to raise funds and build the facility. Finally, all of TC's children could "Come Home to Rome".

On October 21, 2005, undaunted by impending hurricane Wilma, an overflow crowd watched the Crusaders defeat Admiral Farragut Academy 27-7 for their first homecoming game at home and first-ever home win.

Today, Crusader students, alumni and their families enjoy the electric atmosphere of Crusader home games in Crusader Stadium. Homecoming is a time when all Crusaders can now cheer their team on to victory in a home environment.
