After only two weeks since the announcement, the US Scholastic Band Association is pleased to announce only six performance times remain for the Yamaha Cup at the New Meadowlands Stadium to be held on Saturday, Oct. 2

New Meadowlands Stadium is the home of the New York Giants and New York Jets and the 2014 Super Bowl. For three decades, the US Scholastic Band Association has held its legendary Yamaha Cup event at the old stadium now being demolished. Coming to an agreement with stadium officials to hold the event in one of the premier facilities in the country is truly exciting, said Sean King, Director of the USSBA. “Bands should not miss this opportunity!”

Registration is limited to the first 50 bands that enroll in the event on the Web site.  A wait list will be created for bands beyond the 50 capacity.  Step-off times will be determined by the date of registration, said King.  For the dozen or so bands that had already signed-up for the previously announced date of Oct. 9, directors should confirm their intent to participate in the Yamaha Cup at the New Meadowlands Stadium with the USSBA office as soon as possible. King added, “We anticipate the event will be full within the next week, so if you’re entering band camp and on the fence about performing at this spectacular stadium, register now in order to not miss out!”
