Superb sports venues along with big city accommodations and service, but no traffic jams or high prices are what make the Fox Cities a great place to play. Whatever the sport, tournament organizers find the area just right to host their event.

When it comes to sports tournaments, the Fox Cities hasn't been exactly "warming the bench". Our past line up of tournaments would rate high on any scorecard! In 1986, Sports Illustrated magazine profiled the Fox Cities in an article about sports in towns all over America. It noted the area "is a place where high school athletes are still heroes and where summertime baseball is both a pastime and a continuum of generations."

This local passion for sports shows in the local fan support and excellent media coverage given to sporting events that choose the Fox Cities.

From baseball to powerlifting to disc golf and much much more, the Fox Cities has the facilities, people, and passion to help you organize a winning event!
