With co-owners Bill Alcock (FSU FAN) and Leroy Bigsby (GATOR FAN) becoming rivals on college gameday, the challenge was made to turn Winners Circle Sportsbar & Grill into THE hotspot to watch their teams games. The initial focus was on being a hub for the local in-state favorites (Noles, Gators, Hurricanes, Bulls) and it caught on fast. Quickly the sportsbar grew to exactly what they were wanting to be on college gameday, the place to be. Welcoming any and all sports fans to dine, drink, and play, this famous local Sportsbar is now one of the places where college football fans come in droves; many beginning to “tail-gate” and play cornhole on the outside patio hours before game-time and all with one thing on their mind – COLLEGE GAMEDAY.
Thus approached the The Seminole Club of Polk County, with a huge mass of fans, looking for a solidified home to watch their team do work and dominate the division. Then began a take-over. Winners Circle has now also become the Polk County Home for Seminoles Football. While almost all college games are shown across the sportsbars 20+ flatscreens, Seminole fans pack the venue rooting their team to another hopeful victory and are given full claim of both the stage-side projector screens.
For fans of a great rivalry or those who just enjoy being surrounded by other sports fans, a beautiful attentive staff, and a pair of bar owners who truly love sports…this might just become your favorite place to watch the games.
