GRAYSON, Ky. — Next month the city of Grayson, Ky. is scheduled to begin construction on a 64-acre park and sports complex with the goal of attracting a youth sports tournament to the area and give the city an economic boost.
Youth sports tournaments nationwide are a growing industry. Barboursville Mayor Chris Tatum said the annual soccer tournament in Barboursville is an $8 million economic impact. Now the city of Grayson is looking to get a piece of that economic pie.
"We're talking about kids that are 5 or 6 years old with teams just looking for a place to play," said Grayson Mayor George Steele.
