Sports of the World Groundbreaking Ceremony
American Warrior Construction, Inc. will host a groundbreaking ceremony to commemorate construction for the Sports of the World complex, the expansive tournament and outdoor entertainment space, on Tuesday, November 19, 2019. The event will include a reception at the Heritage Inn & Suites at 10:00 a.m. with the Groundbreaking Ceremony to begin at 10:30 a.m. Governor Laura Kelly is scheduled to attend. All are invited to join.
In 2018, the Kansas Department of Commerce approved a Sales Tax and Revenue (STAR) Bond for the Sports of the World Complex, marking a major milestone in the development of the facility. The full complex, including a new hotel, restaurant, indoor pickleball courts, outdoor communal space, and large sporting complex with multiple courts, will take a year and a half to two years to complete. The complex will be located east of the bypass, near Parrot Cove Water Park and the Schulman Crossing shopping center.
