February 14, 2020 (Exeter, CA) – The Women’s Football Alliance is proud to announce the 2020 WFA National Championship will be held at Marv Kay Stadium in Golden, Colorado. The decision to return to Colorado was sparked by the incredibly successful 2019 National Championship. With support from the Mayor of Denver, Governor of Colorado, Denver Broncos, Coors Light and every news station in the Denver area, the WFA saw record crowds in 2019. The WFA hopes to build on these relationships with the community that has proven its love of women’s football. The two-day event featuring Division I, Division II, and Division III National Championships and the WFA All-American game will take place July 10th and 11th.
“The 2019 National Championship was amazing. From the state-of-the-art stadium, local and national sponsors, and all of the local media attention we received, it was above and beyond our expectations,” said Lisa King, Commissioner of the WFA. “Thanks to our success, we’re invited back by the community leaders, the Denver Sports Commission, and the Colorado School of Mines. We want to build on these relationships and together with our many new national sponsors make 2020 twice as big as 2019.”
With the 11th season of the WFA set to kick off in 2 months, the WFA has received an incredible amount of attention, thanks to WFA veterans Katie Sowers, Jennifer King, Callie Brownson, and Lori Locust, whose impact as NFL coaches is being noticed. This national awareness, coupled with the league’s recent partnership with Secret Deodorant in the #KickInequality Campaign and its network television contract with Eleven Sports, has the WFA set to break through as a major name in women’s sports.
