Senior Olympics could be played in Kissimmee

Move would have $20 million impact on area, officials say

KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Olympic games could soon be played in Central Florida.

On Monday, Osceola County commissioners are expected to discuss the possible relocation of The National Senior Games headquarters to Kissimmee, according to the Orlando Business Journal.

The association, which hosts the "Senior Olympics," is currently headquartered in Louisiana.

The paper reports that if commissioners can agree to certain terms, the association would make the move to Kissimmee.

The move could mean the 2017 games will be played in Central Florida.

Mike Sophia, the CEO of the association, says the games would have a $20 million impact on our area.
