Our Mission

The Tampa Bay Sports Commission is a private, non-profit, 501c3, charitable corporation that serves the entire Tampa Bay area as the lead organization for bidding on and hosting premier sports and entertainment events. Through this, we will achieve our mission of creating social and economic impact throughout the Tampa Bay region. 

The Tampa Bay Sports Commission works to unite all interests in the Bay Area under one full-service approach that provides leadership and guidance for the benefit of all parties involved in the bidding and hosting process. Working in partnership with Visit Tampa Bay, our community’s Destination Marketing Organization, we provide a one-stop-shop for all interested parties looking to bring their event to the Tampa Bay region. 

It is the goal of the Tampa Bay Sports Commission to go beyond traditional sports and entertainment marketing to represent and display your group or event in a positive and profitable manner. We create, attract and manage events that can make a valuable and quantifiable contribution to existing or planned brand strategies. Our high-quality events are enjoyable and memorable for audiences and participants, providing sponsors with personalized occasions to build brand values and develop sales opportunities and volumes. The Tampa Bay Sports Commission operates with a philosophy of providing its partners with specifically tailored packages to fit their individual business needs. Above all, we work closely with our sponsors to develop a strong, lasting relationship that continually returns a high value for the investment.

If you have any questions or would like more information regarding available partnership opportunities for the Tampa Bay Sports Commission, please contact Tony Diaz at tdiaz@VisitTampaBay.com


The goals of the volunteer program are to provide an enthusiastic and warm welcome to guests visiting the area, provide information to visitors, and contribute to the general atmosphere of excitement surrounding the event. We work hard to ensure that our events are a tremendous success for the student-athletes, community, and fans. The premier sporting events rely on the help and support of volunteers, without whom, all of our events could not run. To volunteer for any of our upcoming events, email Tony Diaz at tdiaz@TampaBaySports.org.
