The Santa Clara Sports Commission is a division of the Santa Clara Convention and Visitors Bureau. Our ultimate goal is to host more sporting events to increase the economic impact for the city of Santa Clara community and its hotels.

Santa Clara has the combination of world-class sports facilities and community volunteers to make the city a top destination for sporting events. SCSC’s founding board of directors represents sports facilities and organizations throughout the city of Santa Clara.


Funding sources for SCSC will include mostly corporate donations (cash and/or in-kind services) with some advertising and marketing funding from the Tourism Improvement District (TID). 


SCSC meets on a quarterly basis to focus on existing sporting events in Santa Clara and to attract additional events and establish leads and future business for the city.
