SPIRE Football

Imagine your event in a state-of-the-art sports complex that accommodates thousands of athletes at once.

What about a place where every sport is played regulation-size and every detail of the facility is Olympic-grade? Or a place that converts courts and fields by sport as needed so competitions can move indoors based on weather conditions? How about a place that elevates the fan experience with mezzanine, bleacher and stadium seating, as well as an array of concessions/café options, free wireless Internet and over 2,000 hotel rooms within a 30 minute drive?

SPIRE is your place.

It's built by athletes, for athletes. And it shows. Whatever your event, we've got the facilities to take it to the next level.

 

A few of the most notable SPIRE Events to date include:

  • NAIA Track & Field National Championships
  • NCAA Division I Track & Field Invitational
  • Horizon League Track & Field Championships
  • USATF Junior Olympic Zonal Meets
  • Mid-American Conference Volleyball Championships
  • USA Volleyball Junior Men's Team Training
  • Penn State vs. Ohio State Men's Volleyball
