The annual Dallas-based convention scheduled for July 10-12 at the Dallas Convention Center postponed until 2021 due to the deadly pandemic.
“Our number one priority has always been to create an unforgettable and safe experience for our fans, athletes, and exhibitors. After weeks of conversation with the City of Dallas and the Dallas Convention Center, we were informed we will not be able to move forward with the event and we are unfortunately going have to postpone this year’s convention to next summer,” said Andy Alberth, CEO and Co-Founder of SportsCon.
“We will have more information in the coming weeks about rescheduling the Military Flag Football Championship and next year’s convention.”
Tickets purchased for this year’s convention will automatically be transferred to 2021. Moreover, fans and exhibitors can email firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 1 if they want a full refund.
“Although 2020 isn’t going as anyone planned, the show must go on. I assure you that our team’s focus on creating this incredible experience has never been stronger. Next year’s convention will be bigger and better than ever,” added Alberth.

“SportsCon fam, our hearts are heavy today as we announce the postponement of the 2020 convention. The health & safety of our fans, athletes, and exhibitors is our priority. We will miss our SC family, but look forward to providing you all with the best experience in 2021,” the convention said in a statement.
Last year, the convention became so big that they moved into the Dallas Convention Center so they could meet the demand of fans who wanted to attend.
The event included events such as fan interaction, live games like flag football, autograph and photograph sessions, sports challenges and more.
