Unforgettable Sports Adventures in Richmond

Top-flight sports venues, scenic Virginian landscape and great fun await teams in Richmond



Richmond is an aptly named city, rich in American history as the site of great events such as Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty, or give me death” speech. Thanks to its advantageous location at the fall line of the James River, Richmond is within a day’s drive to half of the U.S. population by Interstates 64, 95 and 295.

Don’t just take our word for it, hear what these planners had to say.

“The RRT staff, from start to finish, is one of the most supportive sports tourism teams we have had the opportunity to work with. They offer a truly collaborative planning process, aid in making community connections, and are on site during the event to lend a helping hand. They somehow have found the perfect balance of providing professional event experience while allowing us as a client to feel like family.​”
