Over 100 teams will be competing this weekend at Pensacola Bay Center from 13 states including Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Virginia.

³This is a big event for us and has a huge economic impact to our area, as we are expecting a crowd in excess 3000 people," commented Cyndee Pennington, General Manager.

The U.S. Finals has grown into the single most successful multi-brand event in the entire U.S. attracting nearly 1700 teams in 2011! The U.S. Finals is an end-of-the-year series of five events aimed at crowning TRUE CHAMPIONS in all divisions and levels of cheer and dance, giving teams a chance to see where they rank against other teams in their respective divisions from coast to coast and around the world!

³The US Finals is really looking forward to coming to Pensacola. The beach is such a great place for our athletes and coaches to end their season² stated Mady Mitchell, Assistant Director of The US Finals.

The original Final Destination event was created by the National Leading Competition Companies (NLCC). The NLCC partnership was comprised of four great companies, Americheer/Ameridance, AmericanCheer & DanceAcademy, Eastern Cheer & Dance Association and Spirit Unlimited. Recently, ECDA has joined Americheer and Spirit Unlimited and ACDA have combined into one umbrella company called The Epic Brands. These event producers all still work closely on all aspects of The U.S. Finals from production to sponsorships to qualifiers.

In May 2008, the NLCC and The JAM Brands announced their partnership to join together to produce The U.S. Finals - Final Destination. The JAM Brands brought their seven solid event producers into the mixŠJAMfest, COA Cheer and Dance, America's Best Championships, The Coastal Corporation, LIVE!, Great Lakes Championship Company and GAME DAY Spirit Championships. Since the JAM-NLCC partnership began with the creation and production of The U.S. Finals in 2009, the team attendance has grown by leaps and bounds! Independent associate companies are now also involved, and have learned that giving bids to these awesome events also helps boost their event's team attendance. The U.S. Finals has a full time staff based in Louisville, KY, so with a constant focus on these events, the expectation is that the U.S. Finals events will continue to be the absolute best in business!
