The U.S. Bowling Congress announced today that it will hold its Open Championships in Syracuse in 2018 -- a four-month tournament that is expected to draw an estimated 80,000 visitors to downtown.
Syracuse Convention & Visitors Bureau President David Holder said between 12,000 and 16,000 five-player teams are expected to participate in the 125-day sporting event. About 60,000 participants will travel from around the country to bowl in Syracuse, and they will bring an estimated 20,000 friends and family members with them, he said.
