2016 Southern Heritage Classic presented by FedEx


Thousands come back annually to Memphis, Tennessee, USA to cheer for Tennessee State University and Jackson State University; for lively tailgate parties; to tee off in the celebrity golf tournament; for a glimpse at women’s fall fashions; and to experience music made in Memphis and other familiar rhythms. These are the tangibles. Still, celebrating the Southern Heritage Classic presented by FedEx that began in 1990 is much more. The greatness of the SHC rests on how it connects kindred spirits - young and old - in celebration of the beauty of cultural diversity and the richness of the City's heritage.

The mission of the Southern Heritage Classic is to provide an annual cultural celebration as the premier sports and entertainment event in Memphis that creates a strong economic impact and promotes higher education.
