On behalf of Arkansas Tourism and the Arkansas Sports Team, we’d like to welcome you to The Natural State for your next sporting event.
Convenient sports facilities, plentiful entertainment
Centrally located in the mid-South, with a moderate year-round climate, Arkansas is a beautiful, affordable destination for sporting events. An easy drive from anywhere in the South or Midwest with great interstate connectivity, the state is home to two major airports—Clinton National Airport (LIT) in Little Rock and Northwest Arkansas National Airport (XNA) in Bentonville.
Once guests arrive, they will find many reasons why The Natural State works well for athletic teams of all sizes. Will your team need a break from competition? They will find plenty of adventure to pursue statewide. Arkansas offers exciting contrasts of fast-paced and laid-back, urban and scenic, business and pleasure—all with genuine hospitality you just can’t find anywhere else.
