A Brief History

Battle of the Valleys has become one of SVSU's proudest and most meaningful traditions. The event seized the interest in the football rivalry of SVSU and Grand Valley State University to include a charitable fundraising competition the week of the football game. After 16 years of competition, the GVSU Student Senate has voted to end their involvement in the charitable fundraising competition per their student newspaper

A New Era

SVSU's Student Association announced plans to reconfigure and continue this event on their own in 2019 — tentatively titled “Battle of the Valley.” Navigating substantial obstacles, SVSU students will move forward with the annual fundraiser again in 2020 (October 18-23).
