PJW WRESTLING copyThe 2015 PA Junior Wrestling State Tournament will be held at Erie Insurance Arena on Friday, March 20th and Saturday, March 21, 2015.   Local youth wrestling teams are volunteering their time and effort to run this tournament.  The Erie Sports Commission is looking for the support of the downtown businesses to insure that all staff, volunteers and visitors enjoy their time in Erie.  This support will certainly be mutually beneficial since there will be 1,000 wrestlers and 5,000 spectators in Erie during these days.  The economic impact of this tournament is projected to be three million dollars!

The wrestlers will then compete on Friday and Saturday at the Erie Insurance Arena.  The Erie Sports Commission expects increased lunch and dinner crowds on those two nights.

If any Erie Downtown Partnership members would like to submit a coupon or flier into the wrestler registration packets, please provide 1,000 copies and plan for delivery to the following address by March 6th:
