The city has played host to hundreds of national and regional events for more than 20 different sports and has been likened to an amateur sports mecca due to its convenient and close proximity to 37 hotels, athletic facilities, attractions, shops and restaurants. Additionally, Overland Park is within a day’s drive of more than 60 million people and located 15 minutes from downtown Kansas City. Overland Park was recently named as the No. 1 soccer city by livability.com and is a past winner of the Kansas City Visitors’ Choice Award for Favorite KC-Area Destination. These recognitions come as no surprise to tournament organizers, coaches, players and their families who consistently compliment Overland Park’s overall package for sports tournaments and events.
"I have spent the past couple of years traveling the country promoting USSSA Fastpitch and believe Overland Park is right at the top for destination events. They have great complexes for competitions and the teams are able to plan their vacations around these events because of all the fun-filled family activities offered. Overland Park has quality hotels, a tremendous CVB and tons of activities for teams to enjoy.” –Jeremy McDowell, Midwest Sports Promotions
