Sports are a Part of the Landscape of Indiana.
We are home to the Indianapolis 500, the largest sporting event in the world. The NCAA, USA Gymnastics, USA Track & Field, and USA Diving are just a few of the governing bodies that also call Indiana home. We host Youth, Collegiate, Olympic National and International Championships across the State.
Since the 1970s when Indiana Sports Corp was created as the first – and now longest running – sports commission in the country, sports have been leveraged for community and economic development. From South Bend to Evansville and everywhere in between, Indiana communities are committed to being sports destinations, and they understand that success in staging events is a team effort.
It is in this spirit, that Sports Indiana was established. We are a collaboration of sports tourism professionals representing Convention & Visitors Bureaus, Sports Commissions, Parks & Recreation Departments, Sports Event Management organizations and more. Sports Indiana strives to grow sports tourism in the state by building partnerships, providing development opportunities, and sharing best practices. No matter where you host an event in Indiana, you’ll find consistent, top-notch service. You’ll also find dedicated volunteers and amazing venues spanning the spectrum from historic to state-of-the-art.
If Sports Indiana or I personally can assist you in your decisionmaking process, please do not hesitate to reach us at sportsindiana @indianasportscorp.org. We would love the opportunity to share our Hoosier Hospitality and provide an amazing experience for your fans and participants.
Sincerely, William Knox, President Sports Indiana
