2021 STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS SET FOR TALLAHASSEE AND FORT LAUDERDALE




GAINESVILLE -- The Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) announced this morning the sites of the upcoming 2021 State Championship Games. The FHSAA has decided to revert back to the format of having Class 1A-3A State Championship Games one weekend, with the remaining 8A-4A State Title games being played on the next weekend, with two distinct distant locations to accommodate for state championship travel statewide. The FHSAA has decided to have first weekend games at Gene Cox Stadium in Tallahassee, and the remainder of the state championship games will be played at the DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale. Congratulations to both Leon County and Broward County for being selected to showcase Florida's finest teams at the culmination of the 2021 high school football season.

CLASSES 1A-3A


The 2021 State Championship Games will be played at Gene Cox Stadium in the state capital of Tallahassee from December 16-18, 2021.

One state championship game will be played each night at 7pm during this three-day span at Gene Cox. Details of exact game dates for each classification will be released by the FHSAA once state semifinal games conclude.

Gene Cox Stadium is the site of three previous state championship games in 2019:
3A -- CHAMINADE-MADONNA beat Florida 35-20
2A -- CHAMPAGNAT CATHOLIC beat Victory Christian 35-14
1A -- MADISON COUNTY beat Blountstown 70-35


CLASSES 4A-8A


DRV PNK Stadium is the interim home of the the Major League Soccer (MLS) Inter Miami CF soccer team, and was the former site of the legendary Lockhart Stadium, where many South Florida legends played and also the site where Hollywood Hills captured their one and only state championship (Class 4A) with a 22-9 win over Jacksonville Raines in 1973.

The placement of the larger class state championship games in South Florida should come as a welcomed location. South Florida, consisting of teams from Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties, alone have collectively won 23 of the 40 state championship titles in the last five years. That's right, 23 of 40... over half, 50%. These 3 counties, in Florida's large array of 67 counties, have won over half of the state championships in the last 5 years. South Florida teams have been dominant and a shift of location for larger classifications should lend to more populated games due to less travel time and the ability for professionals to attend work and attend a state championship game during the same day.
