What You Need to Know About the 90th NBC World Series

On July 25th one of Wichita’s greatest summer traditions returns!  The National Baseball Congress (NBC) World Series, powered by Evergy, will bring 10 days full of baseball tradition, family fun, and exciting entertainment to Wichita.

What is the NBC World Series?

The NBC World Series is a 16-team national tournament that showcases some of the best amateur talent across the country and has been held in Wichita every year since 1935.  Raymond “Hap” Dumont (think Lawrence-Dumont Stadium) founded the tournament and brought Satchel Paige in to play in the very first tournament, years before MLB was integrated.

Since then, the NBC World Series has featured everything from glo-ball and red, white & blue bases, to Gertie the Goose, to over 800 future major leaguers playing as a part of the National Baseball Congress.

Where can I see this year’s NBC World Series?

From July 25th to August 3rd, the NBC World Series will be held at Eck Stadium, on the campus of Wichita State University.

How do I get into the NBC World Series?

Tournament passes are your best bet to not miss a pitch of the 90th NBC World Series! Passes get you in to all 35 games over 10 days, and are $75 Upper General Admission, $99 for Lower General Admission, or $150 for Lower Reserved seating. Plus tournament passholders get a guaranteed special Satchel Paige bobblehead.

Upper General Admission tickets are $12 a day, or $15 for Lower General Admission and Reserved, with discounts for student/seniors/military. Click HERE to learn more about ticket options. And all kids 12 and under get in FREE when they register for our brand new Kids Club, presented by Scheels.

Let’s talk about the food!

You can’t have a baseball game without ballpark classics like hot dogs, peanuts & popcorn. With a general admission ticket, fans can bring their own food and non-alcoholic beverages to the Coleman Hill in the outfield. So bring a pizza, a picnic basket, or your gas grill and have your own tailgate experience during the game!

By attending, you should not only expect competitive baseball, but you should also expect a great fan experience every day.  From our Little League Night to Baseball ‘Round the Clock, the fun never stops.  For the full list of our promotions, CLICK HERE.
