PSA & UWF Awarded NCAA Div II

National Volleyball Championship

December 6-8, 2012 at the UWF Field House

The Pensacola Sports Association (PSA) in partnership with the University of West Florida (UWF) is pleased to announce that they have won the bid to host the 2012 NCAA Div. II Volleyball National Championship Tournament.

Eight teams will make their way to Pensacola to play in the quarterfinals, semifinals, and national championship rounds.  All games will be played at the University of West Florida Field House from Thursday, December 6 to Saturday, December 8.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to again showcase Pensacola and UWF’s facilities to the qualifying schools,” commented PSA Executive Director Ray Palmer.  “We’re fortunate to have such a great working relationship with UWF which allows us to win the hosting bids for these prestigious NCAA athletic events.”

This is not the first time Pensacola will host a NCAA national championship.  In 2006, PSA and UWF hosted the NCAA Div. II Fall Festival which featured national championships in Men’s and Women’s Cross Country, Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Women’s Field Hockey, and Women’s Volleyball.  Additionally, in 2011, PSA and UWF again partnered to host the 2011 Men’s and Women’s Soccer National Championships played at Escambia County’s Ashton Brosnaham Soccer Complex.

“The PSA has been a great partner in recruiting these national events,” said UWF Athletic Director Dave Scott.  “Only a select number of communities get the opportunity to host NCAA championships.  We’re looking forward to once again showcasing UWF and the Pensacola community.”
