NJCAA Awards Championships to Multiple Cities

4 May, 2020


At the NJCAA Convention, hosted virtually April 20-24, 25 locations were awarded upcoming NJCAA Championships for future years, announced by the Championship Events Committee.

"On behalf of our Championship Staff, I'm excited about this great group of future championship hosts," said NJCAA Director of Championships Rod Lovett. "It is a nice mix of former and first-time hosts and I think our student-athletes and coaches will enjoy playing in these venues and communities. This was a very competitive bid process and we think we have some excellent sites for the next several years. I'm especially excited that we will have four new championships this fall with the addition of Division II men's and women's cross country and Division II men's and women's soccer."

16 different NJCAA sports received new championship locations over the course of the next several years. 14 states received bids, including three bids awarded to Tyler, TX. The state of New York was awarded four bids, including a pair to Erie. A number of new locations earned championship bids, including Oxford, AL which will play home to the Division I and Division II softball championships in alternating years from 2021-2024.
