Greenville, SC - The National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) announces an agreement with Osceola County and Experience Kissimmee to host the Division I and Division II Men's & Women's Soccer National Championships for three years, through the 2025-26 academic year.
"For 28 years, Osceola County and Austin-Tindall Sports Complex have served as hosts to NCCAA Soccer Championships," stated NCCAA Executive Director Dan Wood. "The location, weather, and facilities have been important, but the staff at Austin-Tindall, our hotel partners, and the Experience Kissimmee team are truly the 'why' we keep returning. We are thrilled to confirm our relationship through 2025-26 and know our guests will be well served and welcomed."
The championships will be held each year in November at Austin-Tindall Sports Complex in Kissimmee, Florida (see NCCAA Championship dates here). Austin-Tindall encompasses 115 acres and consists of nine fields. Five fields are 75 yards x 120 yards and are equipped with lights and scoreboards. The complex underwent a $10.7 million expansion in 2018 that included adding five new fields, one of which was upgraded to a championship caliber stadium. The stadium includes an LED scoreboard and seating for 1,500. Concessions and restrooms located adjacent to the stadium support it along with four practice fields.
Facilities Manager at Austin-Tindall Jeff Kuenzli said, "Austin-Tindall Sports Complex and the NCCAA have been blessed with 28 great years, now the longest standing partnership in the facilities' existence. We are excited to add years to this partnership and look forward to making many more dreams and memories with the NCCAA and their student-athletes."
Each championship will feature a Christian Service Project (CSP) in which student-athletes and coaches have opportunities to serve the local community. Details of CSPs for these events will be released closer to the event dates.
