Planning for 2010 AYSO National Games
Planning for one of the largest sporting events ever to come to Palm Beach County has started. On July 3-11, 2010, the AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) will be holding its National Games at the International Polo Club in Wellington.
The event is expected to draw approximately 3,000 players from across the U.S., occupy 10,000 hotel room nights and have an economic impact of $7-8 million.
During April, representatives from the AYSO national office in California were in PBC to meet with the local organizing committee, 34 members of the hotel community and the PBCSC. JBS Destination Services will be handling hotel bookings.
Interest in the event was high among the hoteliers attending. Becky Reincke of the new Springhill Suites on 45th Street commented: “After attending the AYSO meeting, this only reconfirms our original thought that we should support the PBC Sports Commission and their desire to drive revenue into our hotels and community.”
