NEPS 2015 Update #2 - Host Hotel Information

We are proud to announce we will be partnering with our friends at Sheraton once again.  We will be using the  Downtown Fort Worth and the Arlington Convention Center locations.  All out of town teams are required to stay in these hotels.  They are located on major highways to get to and from stadiums.   We have added the Arlington location for easy access to the George Bush Tollway to get to Nolan Catholic and Southlake Carroll.  The downtown Fort Worth location always provides easy access to Nolan Catholic, Gateway Park, and straight down 35 to Keller High School and even Southlake Carroll for that matter.

With the College Football National Championship coming in the week of our event, hotels are filling up and rates are extremely high.  We have negotiated blocks at both these locations and rates from $89 to $93 a night.  Both hotels are full service hotels and provide player lounges for the teams/players to study, use the internet, and socialize as they please.  Also, each hotel will provide team meeting space for all teams which you can sign up for times upon arrival so your teams can get the proper preparation needed to compete in one of the top showcases in the country.

The Downtown Fort Worth location is located right off the highway and there are several exciting place to visit, tour, eat, shop in the downtown and historic stockyards location.  The Arlington location is located right next to the Arlington Convention Center, Globe Life Park where the Texas Rangers play and of course "Jerry World", the multi-billion dollar AT&T Stadium where America's Team plays, the Dallas Cowboys.  Both locations have several dining and tourist options within walking distance so you better be ready for some Texas hospitality.

Links will be posted shortly so each team can go in and block space for their teams.  In the meantime and for more information on each hotel click the tab above for Host Hotel Information.
