Great events start with a great place and there is a reason why North Carolina is the state to play! 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 partner in the success of your event. SportsNC and its 37 partners are your ultimate planning resource.

Please visit to review our wide-ranging venue database and view our partners’ directory.

We look forward to seeing many of you at an upcoming sports tourism trade show and please visit us at the SportsNC booth. North Carolina would love to host your next event and remember…there is only one state to play!

Yours in Sport,

Travis Dancy
