VACATION HOMES & HOTELS
The USFTL has joined hands with the Sarasota and Bradenton communities for their athletes to receive great incentives for lodging and touristic experience. Along with this move to the Premier Sports Complex in Bradenton, the USFTL is excited to announce that there will be tons of LOCAL HOUSING OPTIONS in Sarasota and Manatee County. For the best deals in these areas which is comparable if not cheaper than the other championship locations, the organization encourages teams to utilize these resources. Imagine watching the sunset from your hotel, motel, or vacation home.
