HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Visit Hutch announced this week that the North American Sport Taekwondo Association (NASTA) has selected Hutchinson for its 2020 National Championship, which will be held at the Hutchinson Sports Arena. The event dates are set for June 11-13, 2020, with competition taking place all day Friday and Saturday. This is the first time Hutchinson has hosted the national championship and the first time the event will be held in Kansas.
The group has been meeting with NASTA more than two years to bring the championship to the Sports Arena. “Bob Crouch and the team with NASTA have been great to work with throughout the bidding process. This event will bring hundreds of athletes and families to the community and we are excited to welcome them to Hutchinson,” Holly Leiker, National Sports & Destination Sales Manager for Visit Hutch, said.
The event is expected to bring approximately 1,500 spectators to Hutchinson for the two-day championship with an estimated economic impact of over $400,000.
