When it comes to hosting sporting events, Greenville might as well be called Championshipville. In just a few short years, Greenville has become a top southeastern destination for major regional, national and international sporting events. A closer look at the location, convenience, affordability, flexibility and quality of venues makes it easy to see why.

Greenville is centrally located between Atlanta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina, and getting here is a breeze. Access by interstate is provided by I-85, while six major carriers including Delta, US Airway and Southwest service Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport.

Significant investments in facilities like the MESA Soccer ComplexWestside Aquatics Center and Bon Secours Wellness Arena, have made Greenville a sports magnet. From the US Pro Cycling Championships and the 2014 UCI Para-Cycling Road Championship to the Southeastern Conference Baseball Championships, Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Championships and the annual BMW Charity Pro-Am. Soccer, baseball, karate, swimming, softball, archery, wrestling, bass fishing, waterskiing - you name it, we've successfully hosted it.

Once you're here, you'll find more than 8.500 hotel rooms and more than 600 restaurants - including more than 100 in the downtown area alone.  That means we can host events from the smallest to the largest comfortably, offering a variety of price points to suit your specific needs.
