GCSC strives to enrich the community through sporting events.
Greater Cincinnati Sports Corporation (GCSC) was formed in 1989 to identify, bid, acquire and manage sporting events in the region. As the only dedicated sports commission based in Greater Cincinnati, we represent the tri-state’s residents and businesses and partner with the region’s two convention & visitors bureaus, Cincinnati USA and Northern Kentucky.
Since its inception in 1989, GCSC has secured more than 250 world-class amateur and national sporting events, such as NCAA Men’s Hockey Final Four, NCAA Women’s Basketball Final Four, and the World Figure Skating Championships. GCSC has also hosted the annual Mobile Skatepark Series National Qualifier, which itself generated over 10,000 visitors, $8 million combined economic impact and 14 national broadcast segments for the region.
Over the past ten years, GCSC has been a top producing market for Cincinnati USA, booking 224,225 total room nights for a combined economic impact of more than $66 Million.
