Maryland Sports Aims To Increase State-Hosted Events

According to its website, the mission for Maryland Sports is to “enhance Maryland’s economy, image and quality of life through the attraction, promotion, retention and development of regional, national and international sporting events.”
For Terry Hasseltine, the agency’s executive director, that means casting a wide net.
While Hasseltine worked hard to bring the 2014 and 2016 Army-Navy games to M&T Bank Stadium and the 2011 game to Landover, Md.’s FedEx Field, and just finished working with Johns Hopkins University and Towson University to submit what he called “a robust series of bids” for the 2019-2022 NCAA women’s lacrosse championships, he’s also excited about an event happening at Fruitland Recreation Park Nov. 19-20: The US Quidditch Mid-Atlantic Regional Championships.
