The NCAA Southland Conference, which represents 13 universities across three states, has called Frisco home for more than a decade.
The conference, in conjunction with the City of Frisco and Hunt Sports Ventures, has successfully hosted the Division I Football Championship title game at FC Dallas’ Toyota Stadium, playing to capacity crowds.
The NCAA has rewarded Team Frisco’s success by renewing Frisco as the championships host site. Southland and Toyota Stadium will host the championship game until at least 2020.
The 50-plus-year-old conference sponsors championship competition in eight men’s and nine women’s NCAA-sanctioned sports and represents more than 4,000 student-athletes.
Famous sports alums from Southland Conference schools include: Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen, who attended Central Arkansas University; Baltimore Orioles star Wade Miley, Southeastern Louisiana; Baltimore Ravens free safety Lardarius Webb, Nicholls State; and legendary NFL coach O.A. “Bum” Phillips, Lamar and Stephen F. Austin.
