FLORENCE, S.C. – The city of Florence Parks and Recreation will host Battle South Carolina, a Flag Football World Championship Tour, on June 29-30 at the Florence Soccer Complex.

Teams from across the Southeast will come to Florence to compete in a flag football tournament with divisions for all ages and skill levels for men, women, coed and youth. The tournament is open invite, and teams do not have to qualify for the event.

Registration is open until 7 p.m. June 24. The cost of registration varies based on the team registered. There’s a $100 cash prize per team registered in the adult pro and open divisions.

Teams will also receive a paid bid to the 2020 Orlando World Championship if 10 or more teams are registered and a half bid if less than 10 teams participate.

Tim Wilson, athletic director with the city of Florence, said right now they are looking at charging $5 admission for individuals over 12 years of age and giving free admission to those 12 and under.

The two-day event was supposed to be held in December, but due to the weather, the tournament was moved to June, Wilson said.

Wilson said they hope to create more exposure for sports tourism and to bring business to the hospitality industry in Florence through the tournament.
