Why Richmond Wins Big

for sports events

We’re a region that’s built around wellness and the outdoors. Here, you can kayak right through the center of our downtown or run and walk through our many parks and hiking trails. Our food scene is getting international recognition. Our history, family attractions, arts and culture, and craft beer scene earn us accolades (and millions of visitors) every year. The Richmond region also has a wonderful variety of hotels, from economy to luxury. And as for location – we’re within a day’s drive of half of the U.S. population. This is why you win when you choose Richmond. 

What They’re Saying

"We have worked with Tourism Departments all over the country on large scale athletic events and can honestly say that working with the Richmond Region Tourism team has been incredible. They have been accommodating at every turn and have helped make our events in Richmond very successful. Great event venues and great attractions keep all of our participants and fans excited about visiting Richmond every year."
Lee Corrigan - President, Corrigan Sports Enterprises

“The CCL's (Club Champions League) relationship with Richmond Region Tourism is more than transactional. We are able to share ideas, collaborate, and create a wonderful experience in Richmond for our league members. Richmond Region Tourism listens to our needs and over delivers with their desire to help make our events one-of-a-kind.”
Brian Kuk – Executive Director, Club Champions League

“Triple Crown Sports chose the Richmond Region because of several key factors. One of those factors was because of the close proximity to a very large segment of the US population as well as the number of colleges and universities that are within an 8 hour drive. Additionally, Richmond Region Tourism has a strong team that was capable of bringing several different entities together to collaborate with Triple Crown Sports in producing a premium baseball championship tournament.”
John Casale – Baseball Director, Triple Crown Sports

“Richmond Region Tourism is a powerhouse of resources and services from grassroots bidding to event day launch. Our event transforms into a turn-key success when they host us. As strong partners for almost 17 years, you would be hard pressed to match the customer service and care provided by RRT.”
Connor Shane – National Events Manager, USA Fencing
