Approximately 75% of the overnight stays influenced by the Convention & Visitors Bureau are generated by sports tourism. But as our competition grows and new facilities are being constructed, we know now is the time to invest in our sports infrastructure if we are going to regain the business we've lost, retain the business we have, and grow the amateur sports tourism market.
The Reclaiming First initiative will make way for improvements to Mercyhealth Sportscore One, Mercyhealth Sportscore Two, the Indoor Sports Center (ISC) at Mercyhealth Sportscore Two, as well as the redevelopment of the former Ingersoll building into a downtown sports complex, UW Health Sports Factory, on the beautiful Rock River. The indoor sports facility allows us to capture a greater share of the sports tourism market, making way for sports such as basketball, volleyball, wrestling, dance and more. The upgrades to Mercyhealth Sportscore One, Mercyhealth Sportscore Two, and ISC added additional lighting, turf fields and other improvements, making these facilities shine among our competitive set.
