The Southwest Florida Gladiators are the only team on the west coast of Florida to have ever won an FFA\FFA2.0 Championship and we have won it  FOUR TIMES in the last six seasons.  In fact, we are the only existing team other than the Miami Bulls to ever win an FFA title and the only team to ever win an FFA2.0 title.  This makes choosing the team you want to play for easy.  Do you want to play and have a chance at a championship ring?  If you do, you want to play for the Gladiators.

We film every regular season and playoff game in Hi Definition so you can get film.  We have a record of 52-3 over the past 4 years. We have the best 4 way stretch uniforms.  We are a family playing and winning football games together. We are the 4-time FFA Champions and are the only team in the FFA to 3 peat.  

There are other teams, some that play in lesser leagues, some are in their first season with new inexperienced ownership and some just have no chance to win it all.  But there is one proven winner with a great organization and a great coaching staff and we are the Southwest Florida Gladiators! If you have the talent, why not play for the best?
