Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where will Pop Warner’s Super Bowl and National Cheer and Dance Championships be held?

A: Pop Warner's annual Super Bowl and National Cheer and Dance Championships are held in Orlando, FL in conjunction with Florida Citrus Sports and Universal Orlando. Orlando has been home to the Pop Warner Super Bowl and National Cheer & Dance Championships for the past 25 years and we are proud of the deep roots and relationships we have made in the Central Florida community. Orlando’s weather, award-winning theme parks and access to top-notch athletic facilities make it a prime location for all Pop Warner teams and families to come together, compete and celebrate the season. While we have typically held championships at Disney World, we will be moving down the road and partnering with Florida Citrus Sports to make Universal Orlando Resorts the new home of Pop Warner national championship week beginning this December.

Q: Why is Pop Warner’s Super Bowl and National Cheer and Dance Championships switching from Disney to Universal Orlando Resorts and Camping World Stadium?

A: We found a highly experienced and well-respected partner in Florida Citrus Sports and an exciting new location at Universal Orlando Resorts and Camping World Stadium, both of which we think will offer some amazing, new experiences for our athletes and their families.

Q: Where will football teams now play? Where will the cheer & dance teams perform?

A: Pop Warner football teams and cheer and dance squads will compete at Orlando’s premier sports and entertainment venues. Football teams will play for a Super Bowl title in the 60,000-seat Camping World Stadium, which has been the recent home to the NFL Pro Bowl and a longtime college Bowl game site, including the Vrbo Citrus Bowl and Cheez-It Bowl. Additional games and practices will be held at fields on the expanded FCS campus in Orlando. Pop Warner’s cheer and dance athletes will compete at one of the nation’s premier event destinations, Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) where they not only perform among beloved Universal characters, Universal-themed décor, music and more.

Camping World Stadium

The stadium has been host to countless high school, collegiate and professional football games. Camping World Stadium is the current home venue of the Citrus Bowl and the Cheez-It Bowl. It is also the regular host of other college football games. Seven National Football League (NFL) preseason football games have been held at the stadium, and it was also host to the NFL Pro Bowl from 2017 until 2020.

Following a massive $207.7 million reconstruction in 2014 that yielded a 90% all-new stadium, the name was changed to the Orlando Citrus Bowl. The modernized stadium features 41,000 lower bowl seats, two 360-degree concourses, multiple giant video displays, a 20,000-square-foot plaza deck and unique indoor & outdoor club spaces.

On April 27, 2016, the venue was renamed Camping World Stadium as part of a multi-year naming rights sponsorship with Camping World.
