Travel Medford, Southern Oregon Sports Commission Partner with American Cornhole to Bring World-Ranking Cornhole Tournament to Medford for Three Yearss

Camp Dennison 9/5/2022 4:58:33 PM

Travel Medford and the Southern Oregon Sports Commission partnered to add Medford to the Majors Tour of the ACO, American Cornhole Organization, the Official Governing Body of the Sport of Cornhole including Medford in the Majors Tour through 2025.

The ACO Oregon Major will come to Medford on Feb. 3-4, 2023 and feature a $5,000 purse to encompass nine world-rankings events across the two-day tournament. Medford is the latest in the expanding roster of ACO Majors on the West Coast and one of only a handful of Majors located west of Texas for Season 18.

“Adding a world-ranking tournament with a prestigious national organization strengthens Medford’s identity as a Sportground™ for various sports and recreation opportunities on the West Coast,” said Angela Wood, Director of Sports Development for Travel Medford. “Our community should also see a boost in economic impact from this event taking place in what’s considered non-peak season for visitor travel.”

The ACO has been the Official Governing Body of the sport since 2005. Its Majors season begins in September and concludes with the ACO World Championships in July. Frank Geers, the ACO president and owner, has been looking to expand into up-and-coming West Coast cities who can establish themselves in the cornhole community.

“Medford, a city with so much to offer our pros, players and ACO Family, looks to be a west coast gem in the ACO Majors tour crown,” Geers said. “We’re excited to bring the ACO to the Pacific Northwest and are confident this will become a staple in the area for years to come.”

The ACO Oregon Major will be held at The Armory and feature free admission and a festival style atmosphere suitable for all ages. Various “luck of the draw” tournaments and game challenges will be open to the public as well as other open courts for casual cornhole play for all fans of the game. The Medford Major will be broadcast via live stream and will include Worlds points-earning divisions including Singles and Doubles, Womens Singles and Doubles, Seniors Singles and Doubles, Coed Doubles, Big Blind Doubles, and Juniors. Points earning divisional play is open to all ACO Members. Membership information is available at www.americancornhole.com.

The Southern Oregon Sports Commission is hosting the Southern Oregon Cornhole Classic on Oct. 8-9 at The Jackson County Expo to raise awareness and encourage registration for the ACO Medford Major. Information can be found at www.southernoregonsports.com.
