National Senior Games Association HQ moving from B.R. to Florida
Nonprofit organization National Senior Games Association announced today it's relocating its corporate headquarters to Kissimmee, Fla., effective immediately. The organization has been headquartered at 8919 World Ministry Ave. in Baton Rouge since 1998, and in 2001 the National Senior Games were held in the city. In a news release, NSGA says the move is a part of NSGA's "organizational growth strategy" as it expands the senior games to become an annual event, instead of a biennial event, beginning in 2016. "We are proud to associate with a community that understands the true impact of major sporting events and is home to some of the best facilities in the country," says CEO Mike Sophia about the group's new location. Under the deal, the senior games will be held in central Florida for at least five years between 2013 and 2025. The NSGA says the relocation will have an estimated $118 million economic impact in the area through 2025, with each national competition typically attracting more than 11,000 athletes to the host area during the 10-day event period.
