Sports We’re at the top of our game!

Montgomery is becoming one of the South’s hottest sports tickets. National sporting event planners are taking notice of Montgomery as a fun, energetic destination for a wide variety of sporting events. With our brand new, top-of-the-line sports facilities, team-friendly hotels, fun activities and an active vibe all throughout the city, Montgomery is the perfect city to host your next high-octane sporting event.

The River Region is quickly becoming known as the sports capital of Alabama and supporting this claim is the Multiplex, a brand-new 70,000 square-foot indoor multi-purpose facility on the edge of downtown Montgomery. This new unique facility can accommodate15 volleyball courts, six tennis courts, two soccer fields, 20 wrestling mats, and could host additional sporting events like gymnastics, beach volleyball, basketball, cheerleading, boxing, weightlifting, ultimate Frisbee and dance, along with baton and twirling clinics and sports camps.
Interest and participation in soccer are growing by leaps and bounds in the United States. Adding to the list of top-notch facilities for the sport is Montgomery’s new, state-of-the-art Emory Folmar YMCA Soccer Complex.
