Indiana Sports Corp, a not-for-profit organization, was founded in 1979 as the nation’s first sports commission. Early investments in premier events and venues, along with attracting major sports entities, solidified Indiana’s place in the world of sports.
Now, we continue to build on our historic roots by growing volunteer, member and civic support while maintaining our status as a premier host in collegiate, Olympic-caliber and professional sports industries.
We believe that the fun, positive power of sports enhances vibrancy in Indiana communities. By bringing world-class sporting events to Indiana, we aim to boost the state’s reputation and create economic growth now and in the future.
Indiana. Where Champions are Crowned.
For more than 40 years the Indiana Sports Corp has been a leading civic organization advancing our community through sports.
