Stuart, FL – April 18, 2019 – This week Team IP signed a deal with Bullpen Tournaments at Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield, IN to become the exclusive provider for event merchandise, decorated apparel, branded products, and online retail integration.
The home of Bullpen Tournaments, Grand Park’s 400-acre sports complex features 31 multipurpose outdoor fields, 26 baseball/softball diamonds, more than ten miles of paved trails and an indoor facility with three full-size fields, locker rooms, and dining facilities. Grand Park brings in almost two million visitors a year and has attracted more than $500 million in economic development to the area since its opening in 2014. Grand Park is also the official home of the Indianapolis Colts Training Camp.
Sports Destination Management, the leading publication for sports event planners and tournament directors, named Grand Park the winners of its 2018 Reader’s Choice Awards. Westfield’s Grand Park Sports Campus was named a “Favorite Outdoor Venue.”
“When we dreamt of Grand Park, we did not want to create a good place for youth sports, we wanted to create the best facility possible,” said Westfield Mayor Andy Cook. “This recognition is a great honor, but we see it every day. When a child from a local sports team or a visitor on a travel team gets to play in our world-class facility that is when we feel really good about what we have built and the experience we continue to develop. The fact that we have also created a strong economy for our community is a value add.”
The partnership between Team IP and Bullpen Tournaments at Grand Park will be one of the first of its kind. Team IP brings 25 years of “award-winning” customer satisfaction as well as being the #1 souvenir merchandiser for amateur sports in the United States. Offering this next level of service in decorated apparel and branded promotional products only adds to the excitement surrounding Bullpen Tournaments and Grand Park making it one of the nations top destinations in youth sports.
“Being able to bring the same top-quality apparel that retails at bowl games and sporting events all over America to Bullpen Tournaments and Grand Park is something we are very excited about. Bringing together two powerhouses like Bullpen and Team IP has the potential to change how the souvenir industry is run. It is a trend you will start to see at other sports complexes across the country and we are excited to be paving the way!”
