El Paso, Texas

By Connect Sports Staff, March 11, 2016

ElPasoPeople don’t call El Paso, Texas, Sun City for nothing. Every year, the city has more than 300 days of bright, sunny weather—that’s more than 300 perfect days to bike, climb, swim, run, throw, kick and anything else that can be done under the sun.

In addition to great weather, El Paso is investing half a billion dollars in facilities for soccer, baseball, football, softball and aquatic sports. America’s newest triple-A ballpark Southwest University Park, home of the El Paso Chihuahuas, won the 2014 Ballpark of the Year award
from baseballparks.com.

The United States Bowling Congress and Conference USA have played here repeatedly, and the Sun Bowl, the second-oldest bowl game in the nation, has been here for 81 years. 

El Paso’s on a winning streak and the CVB hopes you’ll be a part of it. You better El Paso up!

“We hosted the Conference USA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships in El Paso in 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. So when Destination El Paso submitted a bid to host again in 2014, we were thrilled and jumped at the opportunity to work with this dynamic and accommodating group of individuals. Once again, we were not disappointed. The Destination El Paso team is incredibly thorough and did a great job assisting the Conference USA Team in the planning stages and during our events. I highly encourage event planners to take El Paso into consideration for their upcoming events and tournaments.   

–Judy MacLeod, Commissioner, Conference USA
