The Greater Columbus Sports Commission

Columbus Has No Offseason

Since 2002, the Greater Columbus Sports Commission has booked more than 386 new sporting events in the Columbus Region. We never stop submitting bids, either. A year-round schedule, filled with local and high-profile events, is a testament to our fast-paced nature.  

Making a bold name for ourselves.

We’re not afraid to dream big. That’s the Columbus way, after all. We strive to be a city that’s recognized as a top sports destination. With world-class facilities, competitive teams and a diverse metropolitan culture, we’re well on our way to greatness.

Support isn’t a spectator sport.

Columbus rallies around sports unlike anywhere else. Attend any of our events to witness a special kind of camaraderie, spirit and determination. You’ll feel our passion for your event as soon as you set foot in the city.

And the crowd goes wild!

The Sports Commission has generated an estimated $402 million dollars in visitor spending. Those millions of dollars go back into the city we love, improving quality of life for our community and boosting economic growth.

We do amazing things together.   

As a non-profit organization, our small but mighty staff is governed by a vested Board of Commissioners with a shared love for Columbus and sports. We gather annually at The Women’s Sports Report and The Morning Sports Report to thank our community for its continued support. For milestones from the past year, explore the annual report.

Happy fans
