The Cleveland Warriors: Who We Are

(click on photo below for larger view)

When the Cleveland Warriors aren't banging helmets on the gridiron, they're chasing criminals, dousing fires and saving lives. The football players are police officers, firefighters, emergency management technicians and paramedics, medics, corrections officers, and active military personnel from the Cleveland metro area. The Warriors are part of National Public Safety Football League. The league is made up of public-safety workers from cities across the country.

The Cleveland Warriors Mission:
"It is the mission of the Cleveland Warrior Football team to instill pride, camaraderie, sportsmanship, and professionalism to the various public safety forces throughout Northeast Ohio. We wish to achieve these goals through athleticism, teamwork, unity, and civic pride. The Warriors play in the National Public Safety Football League (NPSFL).

 The NPSFL is a national coalition of first responders that donate their time and service to communities by raising money through athletic competition. Members of this team will be given numerous opportunities to volunteer their time and collect money for different charitable organizations in an effort to improve the quality of life of those in need of assistance. Each team in the league donates money, not directly associated with operating cost, to a charity of their choice.

Support the Team

The team raises money throughout the year from company sponsors and individual donations. Ticket sales to games and sales of team merchandise also augment the funds that are available to donate to charity.  Each team member is responsible for the cost of their equipment.  Each public safety league team is obligated to provide boarding, transportation and food for the visiting team once it reaches its destination city.  Individual donations have a great impact on assisting our efforts in outfitting the team members, taking care of visiting teams, and providing charitable contributions.  For more information on how you can support the team and its charitable efforts, see the links on the left on becoming a sponsor or providing donations.
