Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Antonio Perez, General Manager of the Memphis Sports and Event Center, who spotlights the world-class sports and events facility spanning 227,000 square feet, which will include indoor basketball and volleyball hard courts and be adaptable for other sports like wrestling, gymnastics, cheerleading, futsal, as well as convocation and commencement events. The Center is set to open in the Fall of 2022. It will include a cafe and concessions area, as well as outdoor turf fields. Located in the heart of Liberty Park, just outside Memphis’ Liberty Bowl Stadium, the venue is in immediate proximity to a wide array of entertainment, retail, dining, and hospitality options, making it an ideal location for traveling tournaments and events. During the interview, Antonio shares an overview of the center and its various amenities, provides an update on the progress, talks about future staffing needs and business operations, and how they are putting together the event calendar and collaborating with local, regional and national groups, leagues, and tournament coordinators to drive tourism and economic impact for the community.
