Known for years simply as the Fairgrounds, Liberty Park now moves the historic site into the next century with a renewed vision of dynamic activation for all to enjoy. The Memphis Sports & Events Center will be a 227,000-square-foot facility for youth sports and events. The destination will include indoor basketball and volleyball hardcourts and be adaptable for other sports including wrestling, gymnastics, cheerleading, as well as convocation and commencement events. The complex will also include a cafe and concessions area, multiple outdoor turf and dedicated soccer fields, and a playground. The Liberty Bowl Stadium, home field of the University of Memphis Tigers football team, is also on-site with tailgating held for home games at Tiger Lane.
