LLOYDMINSTER, AB/SK - The Saskatchewan Games Host Society has announced Kevin Kusch as Chair for the 2020 Summer Games in Lloydminster.

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Kusch is a fixture of Lloydminster’s sports community; having previously served on the board of the Lloydminster Minor Hockey Association and as President of the Lloydminster Minor Baseball Association since 2000, among other coaching and mentorship roles.

Kusch has previous Saskatchewan Summer Games experience, coordinating the opening ceremonies and baseball venue during the 1997 and 2008 Games in Lloydminster.

“Lloydminster is a city that works hard to come together and host great events,” said Kusch. “The support and excitement generated from residents, councillors and the business community has our Board of Directors confident these Games will be a memorable experience for athletes and families, leaving a lasting legacy for our city.”

As the host of the 2020 Saskatchewan Summer Games, the community of Lloydminster is expected to see a significant economic and tourism benefit. The most recent Saskatchewan Summer Games, held in Estevan in 2016, generated an economic impact of nearly $8 million dollars due to visitor spending and capital development.

The Games, tentatively scheduled for July or August 2020, will involve over 2,000 athletes, coaches and managers in 14 sports, representing the nine sport and recreation districts within the province.
