Sports Facilities Companies Launches Hype Nation Volleyball in Partnership with Showtime Events

Sports Facilities Companies Launches Hype Nation Volleyball in Partnership with Showtime Events

Kicking off the inaugural season in January of 2021, Hype Nation will launch events at Cedar Point Sports Center.

PR Newswire

CLEARWATER, Fla., Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sports Facilities (SF) Companies, the youth and amateur sports industry leader in sports and events venue finance, development and management, has announced a partnership with Showtime Events to establish a new brand of volleyball tournaments called Hype Nation, LLC. Beginning in 2021, Hype Nation will usher in a new standard of volleyball tournament quality for traveling coaches, club owners, players, and families. With SF Companies' longstanding history of service to public entities, municipalities, and convention and visitor bureaus, Hype Nation is poised to maximize economic impact results to host communities including $6 million in forecasted economic impact in their first two events alone.

"Hype Nation is the next evolution of how the SF Companies serve to improve the health and economic vitality for our clients and communities," said Jason Clement, SF Companies' CEO and Co-Founder. "The pandemic has accelerated a need for us to compliment – not compete – with existing events in the SFM Network. Showtime is a proven event partner within the SFM Network and has a reputation for delivering high quality events for participants as well as delivering heads-in-beds and new market visitors."

Kicking off the inaugural season in January of 2021, Hype Nation will launch events at the Cedar Point Sports Center in Sandusky, Ohio and Rocky Mount Event Center in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Combined, these events are on pace to generate nearly 6,000 new visitors and 2,500 booked hotel room nights.

"I've been running volleyball tournaments for 10 years and have partnered with clubs all over the country," said Troy Helton, Partner of Hype Nation. "We pride ourselves on doing right by the clubs, players, coaches, referees, and spectators who attend our events. We work hard to create a collaborative relationship with facility staff and set the highest standard of excellence for event operators. Partnering with SFC allows us to scale the level of service represented in all Hype Nation volleyball events across the country."

Hype Nation is now accepting bids to host regional tournaments for the 2022 season. Destination communities and facilities interested should complete the bid form by March 1, 2021 to be considered. View the event schedule, Hype Nation team, register for a tournament, and bid opportunities, here.
