If you have a passion for visual storytelling and enjoy creating videos and podcasts that capture the essence of the industry, then Midwest Sports Productions needs YOU! 
The MSP Team is a fun-loving, energized and dynamic group at the heart of Midwest Sports   Productions' world class events. Our goal is to drive excitement, win new customers, and introduce existing customers to new and exciting experiences. 
 Each mission and execution is different and is catered to the audience at hand: be it providing the energy needed in the office, igniting the coolest youth sports event in town, visiting a club team just to say thanks for 'playing MSP,' a special guest of ours about to perform or supporting a team that's in need.  We make sure that every MSP family member we engage with gets a special interaction, giving them that little something extra when they need it most and creating a whole new level of energetic feel before, during and after MSP events.
