EventConnect, a provider of event and sports tourism management software, announced a partnership with Legacy Sports USA, which in January 2022 is opening Legacy Sports Park, a 320-acre multi-use family, sport and entertainment complex of outdoor and indoor team athletic facilities geared toward high-energy entertainment and sports in Mesa, Arizona. Legacy Sports USA will use EventConnect’s platform to streamline all attendee user data into one platform to maximize attendee experiences with event and hotel registrations, ticketing, and concessions planning at Legacy Sports Park.
“Partnering with EventConnect will further set us up for success from the start by maximizing efficiency by enabling connectivity on one platform for registrations for Legacy’s tournaments, leagues, camps memberships, athlete performance development, and hotel bookings for club organizers and our athlete families,” said Jeff de Laveaga, COO, Legacy Sports USA.
“The East Valley’s entire destination promise is about to soon change with the development of Legacy Sports Park,” said Visit Mesa, Director of Sports Sales Lance Fite. “Visit Mesa has long served as the leading destination marketing and management organization for this region and we are excited to enhance Legacy’s global outreach as we secure a new roster of athletic events and new sports groups to come and compete on our soil. The depth of sports product that is coming here and the influx of new hotel and retail/entertainment development this announcement has already sparked in Mesa and our neighboring communities is going to establish a commanding new epicenter of visitor-generated economic growth and activity in the Grand Canyon State.”
“We are excited to partner with Legacy Sports USA as they prepare to open the stunning Legacy Sports Park,” said John D’Orsay, CEO at EventConnect. “Our solution will add value and drive revenue to all parties involved, including the sports park, hotel partners, and tournament organizers. What would normally be separate processes for registration, ticketing, concessions planning, and hotel booking will all be on one seamless platform, which will provide unmatched data clarity across the board to all stakeholders. As tournament organizers assess their strategy for the remainder of the year, it’s key for them to focus on software efficiencies that can save them time and money.”
