Sports is part of the very fabric and heritage of Salt Lake. After hosting the Olympic Winter Games in 2002, the city became an Olympic Legacy location. Yet Salt Lake actually hosts more summer-related Olympic events, most notably, USA Volleyball.
But Salt Lake is a winner in any event, with a rich history of hosting all levels and age groups. You’ll find amenities for team sports like basketball, soccer and volleyball, as well as equestrian events, indoor climbing, martial arts and aquatic sports. The community has dedicated itself to maintaining its facilities at a high level, enhancing the experience for both players and fans alike.
Surrounded by the Wasatch Mountains and home to friendly, welcoming residents, Salt Lake is an ideal location in the West for national events. Along with quick access from the West Coast, it’s also within easy reach of Eastern locations–thanks to a new airport ranked No. 1 for on-time arrivals and departures.
Sports Salt Lake is the full-service tourism authority for Salt Lake County, partnering with over 25 venues around the destination. Their positive, can-do outlook can be summed up as: You name it, we can host it.

Seamless coordination makes everything easier for you and your athletes.
