November 3, 2022 - The Decatur Turkey Tournament returns for its 52nd year and will run November 22, 23, 25, and 26 at Decatur Public Schools’ Stephen Decatur Middle School. LLCU has proudly assumed the role of Presenting Sponsor for this year's tournament and has committed to the same for the next four years.

“We are incredibly honored to assume the role of Presenting Sponsor of this fine tradition,” stated Robert Ares, LLCU President & CEO. “Investing in the youth of our community is a high priority for LLCU and the Decatur Turkey Tournament is a great way to do this as it provides them an amazing showcase opportunity.”

As the premier sponsor for the Turkey Tournament for the next five years, Land of Lincoln Credit Union will sponsor two $100 drawings each night for those in attendance to enter. LLCU will also donate $1,000 to the school that wins the Tournament.

New this year, the price of admission is changing to $7 per person. Middle school students attending the games will not be allowed entry without being accompanied by a paying adult. Ticket sales will be at the door only.

Again this year, all attendees will be screened with metal detecting wands as they enter Stephen Decatur Middle School. This security measure is to ensure the safety of all participants and spectators to the Turkey Tournament. However, security screening with wands may add to the time it takes to enter the tournament doors. All attendees should plan accordingly and allow extra time to get into the tournament prior to scheduled times for tipoff.

Finally, keep an eye on the LLCU social media pages as we will be giving away tickets for each day and night of the tournament.

Best of luck to all the teams participating in the 52nd Annual LLCU Decatur Turkey Tournament.
