NCSA Signs On for Three More in Columbus, GA

Pittsburgh, PA - CollClubSports and the National Club Softball Association are thrilled to announce that the city of Columbus, Georgia and the South Commons Softball Complex will remain the host of the NCSA World Series for three more years.

The Columbus Sports Council has partnered with the NCSA to bring the NCSA World Series back to Columbus, Georgia in 2021, 2022 and 2023. The next three years of NCSA World Series dates are as follows: May 20-23, 2021, May 19-22, 2022 and May 18-21, 2023. The outstanding facilities, restaurants, and nightlife along with the southern hospitality provided by the Columbus Sports Council make Columbus an ideal location for this National Championship tournament. The annual event features 16 teams which compete in pool play to then be seeded for the double-elimination bracket to determine which will raise the national championship banner. The U.S. Naval Academy earned the title in 2019.

“The Columbus Sports Council is absolutely delighted to partner with the National Club Softball Association to host the 2021-2023 NCSA World Series in our amazing community,” said Merri Sherman, the Executive Director for the Columbus Georgia Sports Council. “South Commons Softball Complex is rich in history hosting some of the most elite players in the world, and we look forward to continuing that legacy with the NCSA! Off the field, our vibrant city offers many palate-pleasing local restaurants and world class attractions that everyone is sure to enjoy! To everyone involved players, coaches, support staff and spectators, I offer the sincere hospitality for which our city has become so well known.”

Columbus, Georgia was the site of the 1996 Olympic Women's Fast-pitch Softball Competition. The South Commons Softball Complex has eight fields, including a five-field hub with a roundhouse and a three-field fan with a stadium, indoor score booths, concessions and restrooms. The NCSA has held its World Series at the complex since 2010. The stadium at South Commons and adjacent fields have recently undergone a $4.8 million renovation that includes upgrades to architectural improvements, a new drainage and irrigation system, upgrades in lighting and sound systems, new seating, and much more. Continued upgrades will bring the total renovations cost to nearly $5.6 million.

“I am extremely excited that we will once again be partnering with the Columbus Sports Council to host the next three years of NCSA World Series,” said NCSA VP of Softball Operations, Savannah Ahrens. “The South Commons Softball Complex has proven to be nothing short of perfect since moving the event to Columbus in 2010. I look forward to our annual visit and couldn’t think of a better place to crown our national champions.”
