HOME-AND-HOME

What is HOME-AND-HOME?

HOME-AND-HOME meaning business deal between two schools in which they agree to play each other once at each school usually in consecutive years; such deals are generally only made for non-league games since league schedules are made by the league, not the individual schools; in a home-and-home deal, the home team generally gets all the the financial proceeds of the game, that is, the ticket and snack bar sales and the visiting team pays their own transportation costs; if the second game of a home-and-home deal is not played and the school causing the failure was the home team for the first game, they typically have to compensate the other team for loss of the home team revenue they would have gotten from the second game of the series
