Hosted Events and Testimonials
Loudoun has been host to many successful sporting events, below are a few examples and testimonials:
Director of DII Baseball Operations - National Club Baseball Association
“As someone who puts on dozens of baseball events each year throughout the country, I’m incredibly fortunate and thankful for the relationship I have with Loudoun County. They have provided our organization with everything we could possibly need to execute our events to the level demanded by our Collegiate Club Baseball teams. To be given the opportunity to use a facility with such history as Fireman’s Field is something we value very much. When you also factor in the support and resources we receive from the county, it becomes a no brainer why we come back each and every year. I highly recommend any event organizer look into Loudoun County for any of their needs as you surely won’t be disappointed!”
Program Operations Director
“Loudoun County, Virginia has hosted the USSSA Class “C” Eastern National Championships since 2016. Proximity to the nation’s capital and reasonable hotel rates are an attraction, but the support that we receive from Visit Loudoun and Loudoun County Parks and Recreation really make our partnership a home run! Facilities are second to none and the effort and capabilities of the parks’ crews ensure that if there is any way to play when weather interferes, you will play. Loudoun Tourism goes above and beyond to help the event build connections with the local community to create a high -quality off-the-field experience for teams as well. Any event organizer would be wise to take a close look at what Loudoun County can offer their event!”
“Elite Tournaments has had the pleasure of utilizing Loudoun County sports facilities for a number of our competitive soccer tournaments. Not only are the facilities in top notch condition, but the locations are convenient and easily accessible. Loudoun County provides a charming Virginia backdrop with both scenic views and access to choice dining and lodging options; not to mention its proximity to many tourist attractions. The CVB is always generous with their time and resources and is a hugely integral part of our success when planning and executing our events. I would highly recommend working with Loudoun County when choosing your next premier sports and tourism partner."
