Dear Sports Event Rights Holders,

As we all know, teamwork and partnerships are crucial to hosting a great sports event and you will not find any place where this is more evident than the great state of North Carolina. SportsNC is North Carolina’s statewide sports development effort dedicated to growing and promoting the sports event industry. In partnership with Visit NC, this ongoing effort is championed by the North Carolina Sports Association (NCSA), a statewide collaboration of Sports Commissions, CVBs, Park and Recreation entities and Sports Authorities from across North Carolina, who share a direct interest in supporting sports tourism. The NCSA exists to help you explore North Carolina to find the perfect community to host your next successful sports event!

North Carolina’s arsenal of sports venues is as impressive as the state’s wide-ranging and geographically diverse footprint. From the coast of the Atlantic Ocean to some of the highest mountains on the East Coast, it’s a footprint of unrivaled sports terrain whether you are a participant or spectator. Sports events rights holders choose North Carolina year after year due to our unbeatable venues, hospitality, temperate climate and central location on the East Coast.

Whether you are looking to bring a new event to North Carolina or already have an event in the state, SportsNC’s partners are ready and willing to provide unparalleled service to ensure the success of your event. From amateur events to international championships, North Carolina can provide the perfect location for any sports event.
