The USAFL tonight announced that the 2017 National Championships will be held in San Diego, California. This will be the first time since Las Vegas hosted the tournament in 2006 that the Championships will be held on the western side of the nation and the first time in California since 2000.
As this is written there are some concerns for the venue of this year's tournament, Sarasota, Florida (October 14-16 at the Premier Sports Campus). Hurricane Matthew is making it's way across the Caribbean Sea towards Florida and could possibly do some serious damage across the state and up the east coast if it lands there. Fortunately the tournament is not this weekend, but there could be on-going issues into next week that may affect travel and the host facilities.
In the meantime we hope that all our friends on the US East coast stay safe and dry.
