“The Ultimate HBCU Experience”

You Don't Want to Miss This!

Football fans get ready for a challenge that will undoubtedly be one for the books. The 3rd Annual Gulf Coast Challenge Powered by the Mobile Sports Authority will be held September 19, 2020 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. The event follows the success of the previous two GCC football games pitting teams from two Historically Black Colleges and University’s (HBCU’s) in a classic-style format. The 2020 game will feature the Morehouse College Maroon Tigers hosting the Miles College Golden Bears in a Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) showdown. 

Partnerships That Matter

The Gulf Coast Challenge was created to enhance the exposure of Historically Black Colleges & Universities in this enriched community. The event highlights the community’s exclusive interest in HBCUs and the roles that they play in educating aspiring professionals & developing our future leaders.

Becoming a sponsor of  the  Gulf Coast Challenge connects your brand to  a viable,  diverse population, in Mobile and   across  the Gulf Coast. Last year’s game had an economic impact of  nearly 10 million dollars and we want you to be a part of our continued growth. 

Bigger and Better

It’s the premiere game along the Gulf Coast and this year we’re taking the challenge to new heights. Click play to see why this is the game that everyone is talking about.
