The Mission of the Nashville Sports Council is to positively impact the economy and quality of life of the Greater Nashville Area by attracting and promoting professional and amateur sporting events
The Nashville Sports Council is a private, 501 (c) 6 non-profit, membership based organization that was established in 1992 to serve as the "quarterback" behind developing Nashville's sports landscape. The Sports Council has successfully recruited and staged more than 160 events that have yielded over $450 million in economic impact since its inception. In addition, the Sports Council was instrumental in bringing professional sports to Middle Tennessee and continues to be the catalyst for sports development in the region. The Sports Council is The Driving Force of Sports in Nashville!
I believe professional and amateur sports are great ways to bring the community together, providing wholesome entertainment and helping encourage family unity. Youth sports emulates what the larger sports programs are doing; and are a means of keeping our youth involved and connected to adult mentor figures. It also promotes tourism, helping local independent businesses to thrive and grow. I have seen the positive changes in Nashville since the early 80's before the Titans and Predators and the positive impact it has had on our economy as well as families being raised here. As a 15-year Travel and Tourism Professional I support all sports in Middle Tennessee and would love to be a part of giving back to my community through my involvement in the Nashville Sports Council.
