The top 10 teams from around the country will vie for the top prize during the NAIA Women’s Soccer National Championship Nov. 30 to Dec. 6, 2021, at the Orange Beach Sportsplex. Teams, families and fans will travel to Alabama’s beaches from as far as California and North Dakota to neighboring states of Georgia and Mississippi.

“The NAIA Women’s Soccer Championship is a holiday tradition on the Alabama Gulf Coast, and we look forward to welcoming this signature event back after being unable to host the NAIA in the fall of 2020 due to the pandemic,” said Michelle Russ, STS, vice president of sales, sports and events for Gulf Shores | Orange Beach Sports & Events. “The city of Orange Beach and our local tourism-based businesses are ready to get each team back to their home away from home.”

Games will take place Nov. 30 (first round), Dec. 2 (quarterfinals), Dec. 4 (semifinals) and Dec. 6 (championship). Each match will be streamed live on NAIA’s website. Tickets can be purchased onlinefor $35 for championship/full tournament passes and $15 for daily passes.
