Yearning for football again? Go cheer on the Charlotte Cobras – a team of Charlotte-area cops and firefighters – who play the San Diego Enforcers on Saturday for the 2015 NPSFL (National Public Safety Football League) championship.

Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. at Providence Day School, 5800 Sardis Rd. Both teams are undefeated at 4-0 and the Cobras have yet to be scored on this season.

Each of the NPSFL teams play for a charity. The Cobras have donated $80,000 to Charlotte charities. Saturday’s championship game will be played in honor of a CMPD detective battling a rare form of Lymphoma.

Tickets are $10 for adults; free for children under 12. Buy them at the gate or online at www.charlottecobrasfootball.org.
