Bethel Football Team Advances to Quarterfinals

Bethel University will face North Central College in the NCAA Division III playoffs on December 7.

The Royals advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division III Championships following Saturday's 34-27 victory over Wartburg College in the second round of the playoffs. As a result, Bethel will play host to North Central College (Ill.)—College Conference of Illinois Wisconsin (CCIW) Champion—which is the third straight postseason game hosted by Bethel. Saturday's Elite 8 matchup will be held on Bremer Field at Royal Stadium with kickoff scheduled for noon.

On Saturday, December 7, Bethel University will also be hosting Festival of Christmas in addition to the home playoff football game. While it is thrilling to be hosting two outstanding events, it will present considerable parking challenges. If you plan on being on campus on that afternoon, please note the following parking regulations:

  • Football fans will park at a nearby off-campus location and will be shuttled to the stadium. This shuttle is free and will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • The East and West parking lots will be reserved for Festival of Christmas attendees.
  • Employees and Bethel community members are asked to park in the Seminary commuter lot.
