NESTLED IN THE HEART OF EASTERN, NC…

Between Raleigh and the coast, Goldsboro is a destination with rich culture and heritage. We could go on about our legendary BBQ joints, scenic state park, historic sites that date back to the Revolutionary War era, and brag about the daily airshows we witness as F-15E Strike Eagles soar across our skies, but what Goldsboro’s appeal really boils down to is its originality. Competing in the best venue possible is a guarantee when coming to Goldsboro, but we also know that our downtown’s beautiful new streetscapes, expanded multi-use greenways, and numerous boutique shops, eclectic eateries and tap houses are key ingredients to hosting a successful and meaningful tournament for visiting athletes, spectators, and staff.
