A new sport comes to HSV
KBF is joining a strong sports culture in Huntsville, which already hosts hockey, baseball, soccer, cross country and more. The organization, which hosts kayak bass fishing tournaments throughout the year, will bring its headquarters to Ditto Landing.
“We are pleased to welcome Kayak Bass Fishing to Huntsville and excited to have their headquarters at Ditto Landing. As our city continues to grow, adding companies like Kayak Bass Fishing not only improves our quality of life, but introduces Huntsville to a new market of people who might not otherwise know we’re the best city in the U.S. to live.”Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle
Here’s what you’ll find at the HQ, which will be in the East Harbor of Ditto Landing:
- Production studio
- Space for seminars
- FishOPS hub (nonprofit that supports veteran’s advocacy, public servant + first responder organizations)
Hosting championships + more
Additionally, Huntsville will play host to future KBF national championships in 2023, 2025 + 2031. These national championship events feature:
- Up to 650 anglers
- $3.5 million economic impact
KBF will also host regular season competitions at their Ditto Landing HQ.
“This is a tremendous partnership that not only brings major events to our area, but it helps market Huntsville and Ditto Landing as one of the top outdoor destinations in the country. With the visibility in their television package and ever growing follower counts on social media, bringing their headquarters and events to Huntsville is a big win for our community.”Judy Ryals, Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau President + CEO
