Opening Ceremonies: Opening Festivities, Pin Trading, Give-a-ways, games & entertainment
 
Details:  The Southern National is designed to mirror the USFA World Series, on a more Regional scale. All USFA National events will be run in the same format as the USFA World Series, however where the USFA World Series will draw teams from all over the country and Canada, the USFA Southern National will accommodate teams from the Southern States that for whatever reason are unable or choose not to travel to Panama City Beach.

Why does USFA have a World Series and Nationals? One of the main reasons for adding the National events is because so many teams have asked us to. Thousands of teams participate in USFA each year, but unfortunately we can't accept all of them at the World Series. We also understand that teams want and need to make changes from year to year.  For whatever reason the USFA World Series may not fit into your teams travel plans, but hopefully one of our other National events will.


Whether your team chooses to attend the World Series or one of the National events, you won't be disappointed!!  Opening Events with fun and prizes, Pin Trading, Team Gift Exchange, A Quality Event teams come back to year after year!!
 


Tournament Format: The tournament is a 5 game format, 3 pool play and double elimination.
