Tulsa, Oklahoma, has been chosen as the exclusive host city for this year's only Teqball event in the United States. The one-of-a-kind sporting spectacle that will combine the thrill of Teqball with the vibrant energy of Tulsa will be held from June 14 to 16. Although the action will take place in Tulsa, the energy certainly won't stop at the city limits as international TV and media will be onsite amplifying the tournament through a global broadcast.

After 2023, which was the busiest year for the Budapest, Hungary-based International Teqball Federation including six events in Los Angeles and one in Miami, the governing body of Teqball together with Tulsa Sports Commission will organize the only tour in the U.S. in northeast Oklahoma's premier destination.

"We are honored to be the only city in the country to host this unique event," Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum said. "I am thankful to the Tulsa Sports Commission and so many others who are working to make Tulsa the city of choice for premiere sporting events."

With three categories (women's, men's & mixed doubles) the preliminary stage will be held in Titan Sports and Performance Center, while the final day where world-class Teqball players showcase their skills and compete for glory in a thrilling tournament outdoors in the heart of downtown Tulsa.

"Tulsa's sports landscape has been enriched by the TSC's efforts, and the Teqball World Series promises to continue the tradition by providing a platform for economic growth, attracting visitors, and showcasing Tulsa's capabilities as a premier host city. I am sure the locals will enjoy the unique blend of Teqball excitement against the backdrop of Tulsa's rich cultural heritage." says Mr. Gabor Borsanyi, President of FITEQ.

Tulsa Regional Tourism spearheads the efforts to secure and host signature events. The organization plays a pivotal role in bringing these acclaimed gatherings to the vibrant city of Tulsa. In doing so, it contributes significantly to the region's appeal, drawing in visitors from far and wide.

"It has been a pleasure to work with the International Teqball Federation to bring this action-packed sport and over 1,000 athletes, staff, and media professionals from 60 different countries to Tulsa," said Alex Brown, National Sports Sales Manager for the Tulsa Sports Commission. "This global sport is anticipated to bring our region a direct economic impact of over $1.3 million, with a total economic impact estimated at $2.3 million."
