Tallahassee Sports Council
Sharing foresight and a common interest in athletics, the hospitality industry and business community originated the concept of the Tallahassee Sports Council in 1989. Today, the Sports Council, a division of Visit Tallahassee attracts sporting events with economic impact and exposure to the Tallahassee and Leon County region.
The Tallahassee Sports Council’s main goal is to maximize the economic benefits of sports for the betterment of the local community. This is accomplished through the pursuit and proficient hosting of international, national, regional, and state events that span a wide spectrum of sports and performance levels.
The Sports Council also supports the development of local athletics through various service programs and through the support of local clubs and organizations. From support of youth sports to adult competition, the Sports Council works to emphasize the vital role of sports play in our everyday life. Since its inception, working with all of our partners the Sports Council has worked diligently to earn Tallahassee the well-deserved reputation of an ideal site for competition.
The Tallahassee Sports Council operates as part of Visit Tallahassee and is a department of Leon County Government and services provided by the Sports Council range from organizing events to awarding grant money, to assisting with logistics, hospitality, housing, funding, transportation, venue selection and public relations. This degree of involvement is credited, in large part, to the dedication and expertise of Tallahassee Sports Council committee members, hundreds of volunteers and cooperation from local government and private venue operators.
We look forward to working with you in Tallahassee - Where Everything Comes Together Beautifullly.
