The 27th installment of the Middlesex County vs. Union County all-star charity football game will have to wait until next year.

Game Director Marcus Borden released a statement via Twitter on April 15 announcing he had decided not to hold the event that was scheduled for July 16 at North Brunswick Township High School because of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.

Originally named the Snapple Bowl, the game was called the Autoland Classic last year.

Borden said in the statement that after consulting with medical experts and local government officials it is in the best interest of everyone involved to not have the game played this year.

The all-star game usually features senior football players, coaches and cheerleaders from both Middlesex and Union counties.

The event benefits Children’s Specialized Hospital of Mountainside and the Lakeview School in Edison, a program that is a part of the New Jersey Institute of Disabilities.
