For the past two years, sports fans from across the nation have descended on DFW for the National Fantasy Football Convention. Now, the event is evolving into something even bigger. This summer, get ready for the first-ever SportsCon, a celebration of all sports, giving fans a chance to interact with their favorite professional athletes.
The original convention was the brainchild of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
When the event’s first two years were an overwhelming success, organizers knew that they needed to step up their game. “After listening to fans, attendees, players and sponsors, it was clear that everyone wanted more,” explained SportsCon CEO Andy Alberth. “We really had no choice but to expand in a major way.”
Inspired by the annual San Diego Comic Con, the new SportsCon aims to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for sports fans from around the world, offering interactive exhibits and panel conversations with top athletes and sports personalities. “Instead of meeting your favorite superheroes, you get to meet your favorite sports heroes,” Alberth continued.
