Evansville Sports Corporation Impact
Events the ESC has secured, managed and created have had an EEI on Southwest Indiana in the amount of $30,000,000. ESC events bring in visitors to the community who spend money on hotels, restaurants, retail outlets and attractions to name a few.
Evansville Sports Corporation events have been televised in more than 23 million homes in 193 countries total.
The ESC is dedicated to providing opportunities for local kids to engage and participate in the events we host. Youth Clinics coordinated by the ESC during events like the NCAA Division II Men’s Elite Eight and the PGA Web.com Tour events have allowed more than 1,500 local kids to meet and learn from the best.
The Old National Bank Golf Gives Back Program, which is part of the the PGA Web.com Tour event, has generated $900,000+ for local charities in just four years. The Riverside Relay Marathon generated $31,000+ for local charities, in 2015 and 2016. Finding a way for our regional charities to benefit from the events the ESC secures for the community is something that is extremely important.
