“We are extremely fortunate to have found such a wonderful host city and partner for this event. There aren’t many places in the country that have as much to offer the American Cornhole Organization as the city of Knoxville, TN. We are proud and excited to have them host the ACO World Championships of Cornhole XI in July, 2016,” stated Frank Geers, President of the ACO.

“This is going to be the biggest and best ACO Cornhole event ever. The Knoxville Convention Center is situated in the heart of the city and is a perfect venue and with newly added Majors from Lakeland, FL to Pleasanton, CA, and our Membership base growing daily, it promises to be an amazing five days of Cornhole, Tailgating and Pitchin’ FUN!” Frank said.

“Fun is exactly what we want for our visitors. Repeat events like this are wonderful for our destination as a whole, and great for the Knoxville Convention Center as they show themselves as a world class venue,” says Kim Bumpas, President, Visit Knoxville.

“With the growth of cornhole popularity around the world and the success of the World Championships held here in July 2015, Knoxville could not be more ecstatic to host this tournament,” said Steve Winfree with Visit Knoxville.

"We are proud to host this event for American Cornhole for a second year in a row. We even were fortunate enough to have ESPN in town last year for this event. Maybe, if we are lucky, they may return for a second year as well. Visit Knoxville will be encouraging locals and tourists alike to become sponsors, look to enter or just come out and be spectators.” said Steve.
