Not sure if Greater Akron is right for you? Just see what we have to offer.
Greater Akron is not only one the Midwest’s most geographically accessible cities via several major highways and the Akron-Canton Airport, but is home to an amazing array of venues that can be leveraged for any sporting event and any size crowd. Holding a traditional soccer tournament? Cool, we have more than 100 indoor and outdoor venues that could work for you. Doing something a little different, like a roller derby? We can help you with that too.
Regardless of the season, both amateur and youth events regularly take place in the area including soccer, softball, gymnastics, basketball and more. We have team-friendly accommodations where players, contestants and spectators can expect heartland hospitality at any of the reasonably priced hotels and suites in the area. With more than 5,500 rooms, you can take your pick. Go on, rest up from traveling and get rejuvenated before an eventful day of competition.
But sports aren’t everything. Well, okay, sports are everything. But you may want to do a little exploring before or after your event. Greater Akron is rich with art and culture, food and entertainment options to enjoy. Your attendees will never be at a loss for things to do, making it an enjoyable and memorable trip for everyone involved. Check out a list of local attractions over here.
