Gateway Sports Village Chooses Great Plains Sponsorships as Naming Rights Agent

Gateway Village Sports Complex announced today that title Sponsorship rights for the one-of-a-kind destination are now available through Great Plains Sponsorships.

Gateway Village is a mixed-use sporting complex under construction in Grandview, MO with over 1-million square feet of retail, hotel, dining, office, entertainment and residential footage.  The $300 million, 240-acre complex is slated to open in the Spring of 2017 and will feature 14 all turf soccer fields, making it the largest turf complex in the world. It will serve as a destination sports and entertainment complex on a year-round basis.

"We are excited to officially open the naming rights and sponsorship process.  We have had a lot of excitement around the project, companies aligning themselves with the complex, youth soccer and overall physical fitness and health," stated Deron Cherry, Gateway Founder and Managing Partner. "With construction underway, league play and tournaments have already been scheduled.  It's time to match up sponsors with our soccer and sports community."

With 1.9 million annual visitors just for soccer and 5 million visitors/year projected throughout the complex at full build-out, Gateway Sports Village will provide a Naming Rights partner with massive brand exposure on a year-round basis, unlike any other venue in the area. This unique and high-impact investment includes opportunities such as:

  • Category exclusivity, intellectual property and official partner rights

  • Hospitality, print and media-related opportunities

  • An array of other opportunities specifically customized to achieve a partner's initiatives.

Not only is the Kansas City area prosperous and rich in culture, it's also the soccer capital of the United States." said Ryan Querry, President of Great Plains Sponsorships.
