The Green Gator Invitational was first held in March 1966. It is one of the largest fencing events in the Southeastern U.S., drawing competitors from Florida, as well as international fencers from Latin America and Europe. Its name comes from, obviously, the color of the UF mascot, but also the event's proximity to St. Patrick's Day. The last consecutive annual tournament was held in 1999. The event was revived on its 40th Anniversary in 2006. 2020 will mark the 54th Anniversary of the Green Gator Classic.
