It’s more than a game. It’s providing a world-class experience to everyone who enters the ballpark – from the fans to the umpires to the gate staff to the tournament staff. It’s setting the tone for the entire tournament and creating a welcoming atmosphere. 
Hospitality is at the heart of promoting the more than 150 Midwest Sports Productions tournaments. And we are looking for someone eager to gain real-world experience in the sports industry. 

Our 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, introduce existing customers to new and exciting experiences and make an impact on the communities in which we run our tournaments. 
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.
Our Hospitality Intern will assist in securing, organizing and staffing hospitality tents at various tournaments throughout the year. 
In addition to Hospitality projects, you may also have the opportunity to work in other services such as marketing, social media, business development initiatives, and game-day operations as needed.
