Cape Girardeau SportsPlex History

The Cape SportsPlex was established after a facility review committee recommended the venue as their top choice for economic development using the Restaurant Tax collected to help support growth in recreation, sports and tourism related activities in the region. The venue, proposed by Midamerica Corp. and their partners, went through a competitive RFP process which received endorsement by the Cape Girardeau City Council in September of 2015. The Design/Build aspect of the building was led by Penzel Construction out of Jackson, Missouri. The 10+ acres for the building and surrounding parking was donated by Midamerica Corp. and is located at the juncture of Interstate 55 and State Highway 61 between the City of Cape Girardeau and the County Seat of Jackson, Missouri.   

The community celebrated the facility opening on May 6, 2017. The Cape Girardeau SportsPlex draws sporting and tournament business from a five state region; Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee – all within a 200+ mile radius of southeast Missouri. This area is considered a regional hub for business, medical, education and recreational opportunities.
