Sport York Shows the Serious Side of Fun and Games

Published: 02/05/2015
Sport York aggressively courts a wide variety of youth and adult sporting events by promoting York County as Pennsylvania's Premier Sports Destination.

There are a lot of tough competitors fighting for these same events, but Sport York plays the game as well as anyone.

During the 2013-14 fiscal year, Sport York attracted $13.4 million in visitor expenditures by leveraging the area's outstanding facilities and touting our area's centralized location and many wonderful amenities.

The future is even brighter. In 2015, York County will host a number of national sports events that are coming to the area for the first time, bringing with them throngs of visitors and millions of dollars in lucrative sports tourism spending.

And the Keystone State Games, Pennsylvania's largest amateur athletic festival, will be returning to York in 2015, 2016 and 2017, bringing more than 50,000 athletes, family members and coaches over the three years.

Bottom line? When it comes to hosting sports events, the winning team of York County's versatile facilities and the York County CVB's sales and marketing expertise has put our community on the map.
