In a major step toward getting #cleatsinthegrass, Major League Football announced Mobile, Alabama as host city for its 2022 training camp set to get underway on July 18, 2022.
MLFB’s initial training camp is expected to draw hundreds of football players from around the country and will be led by MLFB Head Coaches - Terry Shea, Earnest Wilson, Jerry Glanville, and Bill Conley.
“MLFB’s core mission is to provide personal and professional growth opportunities for football players, coaches, trainers, and front office personnel,” stated MLFB Senior VP of Football Operations Mike McCarthy. “Today’s announcement of Mobile as MLFB’s initial training camp shows our determination to deliver on this.”
In keeping with its goal of delivering exciting football within a sustainable business model, all four MLFB teams will conduct training camp in one city.
This strategy allows MLFB to reduce expenses while providing an opportunity to the greatest number of players.
McCarthy explained, “With a centralized training camp, savings are realized on travel costs, camp operations, administrative overhead, and more. Another advantage is that all four head coaches can perform player evaluations simultaneously, resulting in fewer talented players slipping through the cracks.”
Founded in 1702, Mobile, Alabama was selected to host MLFB’s initial training camp because of its facilities, geographic location, rich football tradition, and the cooperation of local civic officials.
“I cannot express how much the MLFB’s executive team appreciates the efforts of the Mobile Sports Authority, the City and County of Mobile, the Ladd-Peebles Stadium Board, Visit Mobile CVB, and the people at McGill-Toolen Catholic High School (the Archbishop Oscar Lipscomb Athletic Complex - the Lip) - in helping us to pull together and execute our first training camp,” commented MLFB CEO Frank Murtha. “When we were looking for a civic partner to host our inaugural training camp, we were wowed by Mobile’s community spirit and can-do attitude.”
Murtha continued, “Thanks to this great partnership, we are looking forward to a great training camp experience for all our players, coaches, trainers, and staff.” To accommodate the hundreds of players expected, MLFB’s training camp will utilize two facilities with the Arkansas Attack and Virginia Armada conducting practices at one location, while workouts for the Alabama Airborne and Ohio Force will take place at the other.
Players and coaches at both facilities will enjoy turf fields and other amenities designed with player safety and comfort in mind.
MLFB Senior VP of Football Operations Mike McCarthy stated, “One reason we chose Mobile to host MLFB’s inaugural training camp was the outstanding football facilities throughout the area. We believe MLFB players and coaches will be thrilled when they arrive at both of these locations.”
