With great venues and numerous outstanding attractions, you'll find Lake County is the ideal location for your sports event.

Lake County has much to offer organizations and event rights holders. We understand that there is more to hosting an event than what takes place on the field. Between the beautiful lakefront of Lake Michigan and over 75 inland lakes, to the excitement of the thrilling rides of Six Flag's Great America, there is plenty to do after the competition is over. We also have over 8,500 hotel rooms to take care of competitors and their families.
