The Football University (FBU) National Championships delivered thousands of athletes and spectators to Paradise Coast Sports Complex for a fourth straight year, crowning champions and identifying future stars Dec. 15-19.
FBU contested nearly 100 games at PCSC, spanning all nine available fields, during its National Championships. Over 2,500 athletes and over 500 coaches descended on the Paradise Coast from as far away as Southern California to compete in 10-under, sixth, seventh and eighth grade divisions.
FBU also played the wildly popular Freshman All-American Game inside PCSC Stadium on Dec. 18 – pitting the best ninth graders from across the country against each other. Prior to the Freshman All-American Game, FBU welcomed nearly 400 registrants to its annual Futures Showcase combine event.
“Our team is delighted to welcome FBU to the Paradise Coast every year, and to give them a world-class facility where they can crown national champions and make lasting memories,” said PCSC General Manager Adrian Moses. “FBU’s National Championship week is a huge part of a packed December schedule for our team, and I am proud of the effort by all involved to make it happen.”
FBU has all-star teams compete in regional formats throughout the fall on its Path to Naples. Over 100 teams competed in the 2023 event, which drew considerable media and recruiting exposure for the athletes.
“We are thrilled to continue to call Paradise Coast Sports Complex home for the FBU National Championships,” said Steve Quinn, Managing Partner of FBU. “The event just keeps getting better and better every year. We appreciate the support of the CVB, our county commissioners and the complex for all they do to make the FBU National Championships a success.”
