The Grand American will remain at the World Shooting Complex through 2036
The Amateur Trapshooting Association's signature event will remain in southern Illinois for the foreseeable future.
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources and the ATA have signed a contract extension that clears the way for the World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta to host the ATA Grand American through 2036.
The Grand American, the largest and oldest shooting event of its kind, features more than 20 events and attracts more than 5,000 competitors and spectators from across the globe.
The event, which was first hosted at the World Shooting Complex in 2006, has an estimated economic impact of $25 to $30 million annually.
The 2024 Grand American is set for July 31 to August 10.
