The Greater Cleveland Sports Commission is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization governed by a committed group of trustees representing some of the region's most esteemed private, public and nonprofit institutions. The organization currently has ten full-time staff overseeing sports development, marketing, communications, fundraising and events management. We have experienced tremendous growth through our ten-year existence and the entrepreneurial spirit abounds within the organization. The Sports Commission is funded by contributions from the board of trustees, and annual benefit - The Greater Cleveland Sports Awards, fees from a partnership with the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, revenue earned from events, foundations and public support from Cuyahoga County and the City of Cleveland.
Originally formed in 1993, the Sports Commission was re-founded in 2000. Since that time, the Sports Commission has been directly responsible for attracting more than ninety sporting events and activities to the Greater Cleveland area, generating nearly $300 million in economic impact.
