Tournament or Event Permits

Groups or organizations looking to host tournaments or events using Milwaukee County Parks athletic facilities must submit an application to the sports office. A tournament is defined as an athletic or sports competition that meets the criteria listed. End of league or season tournaments may be considered a tournament, for permitting purposes, and not a continuation of league play.

A tournament includes:

  • Athletic or sports competition 
  • Bracketed or pool play (or other typical tournament format) designed to determine a winner(s)
  • Open to the general public to participate or spectate
  • Collection of fees prior to or day of event for participants or spectators
  • Requires exclusive use of athletic fields or complexes
  • Event infrastructure which includes tents, tables, chairs, goods and services vending, food and beverage sales or service, vendors or sponsors

The sports office will make the final determination as to the classification of the activity. Tournaments are classified as “Athletic” permits. Tournament permits must be secured following the established athletic permit schedule, per season. Tournament fees will apply.   

Applications must be turned in at least 30 days in advance and will have additional permit requirements.
