Have you had a chance to check out the new Podium Stadium in Downtown Spokane? The new sports venue was hard fought for. Original votes rejected the initiative, and later, the location was hotly contested.
At long last, The Podium is hosting world-class sporting events in Downtown Spokane! Spokane has a long history of hosting news-worthy local, national, and international events. Take Hoopfest, for example - it’s the largest outdoor 3-on-3 basketball tournament in the world, hosted right here in Downtown Spokane. We are also home to Spike and Dig, one of the world’s largest co-ed outdoor 6-on-6 volleyball tournaments.
Now, Spokane is well-positioned to break into the world of indoor sports, too. And if February is to be any indication, it looks like The Podium is hitting the ground running!
Here are just a few of the upcoming events at The Podium:
