Based on schedules available from the Illinois High School Association on Aug 1, 2015, 538 Illinois high school football teams will have a nine-game season this fall, beginning on Friday night, Aug 28.
Of those 538 teams, only TEAM Englewood in Chicago will play just two home games. Most teams play either four or five games at home, as shown on the circle graph below. Note that many teams in Chicago don’t have a ninth game scheduled at this time and were excluded from the collection of data represented in the chart below.
At the end of the regular season, we’ll revisit some of this data. Our coverage of Illinois high school football begins Monday.
