“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.
