MLTT features world class players representing 40 total countries. They compete in an innovative team game format that concludes with the Golden Game, a pulse-pounding race to 21 points where every member of each five-person team rotates every four points. Wichita is hosting the league’s West Division.

“Major League Table Tennis represents the best table tennis players in the world, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to welcome them and their fans to our vibrant city,” said Josh Howell, vice president of sports development at Visit Wichita. “Wichita is an amazing sports city – a place where sports thrive, and Midwest hospitality abounds. Additionally, we are confident Wichita State and Charles Koch Arena will prove to be an ideal venue, making it a memorable experience for all.”

General admission tickets for the event start at $20 and $40 for VIP. Tickets also grant fans access to the fan zone, where they can play on ping pong tables, meet the pros, and potentially even get a chance to play a few points against them. 

"The first half of our season has been a tremendous success, exceeding our expectations in terms of player performance and fan engagement,” MLTT Commissioner Flint Lane said. “As we enter the second half of the season, we're excited to build on this momentum and continue to deliver high-quality, competitive table tennis to our growing fan base. We can’t wait to meet the players, fans and families in Wichita to close out our regular season."
