About Sarasota County Sports Commission (SCSC)

As a division of VISIT SARASOTA COUNTY, the Sarasota County Sports Commission (SCSC)’s primary mission is to generate economic impact to Sarasota County through sports tourism.  From promoting our destination’s world class venues to facilitating the execution of a successful event, the SCSC is responsible for a variety of initiatives to make Sarasota County a premier sports destination.  

Through sales and marketing strategies, the SCSC works to attract new events in over 30 different sports on the state, national and international level. In addition to promotion and advertising, we actively research and seek out RFPs for events that would be a suitable fit in our community. Typically serving as the principle organization for submitting bids, we act as the primary liaison between event organizers and our community partners – venues, hotels, vendors, services, etc.

The SCSC recognizes the value of an event that becomes a mutually beneficial “win-win” for both the organizer and the venue/vendors – a relationship that creates an exceptional and potentially long-term impact on our community. Building these relationships is a top priority for the SCSC, therefore we strive to provide personalized support to the needs of event organizers and our community partners to the very best of our ability.

If you are interested in bringing your event to Sarasota County; or are a local business who would like to become involved in the SCSC; or have any other questions about our mission, please reach out to either SCSC staff member below for more information.
