What We Do

The Sports Corporation is committed to bringing events to the community that showcase our many great assets. Many times, a bid is required to bring those events in. We specialize in in creating winning bids which includes everything from securing support from elected officials, coordinating with venues, communicating with governing bodies and local organizations and much more.

If you think an event might be a good fit for the community and there is a bid process that must be followed in order to secure that event, please give us a call at 812-434-7699.

When it comes to events, getting them is half of the battle. Executing them is where the communities committed to hosting sporting events stand out. The ESC specializes in all aspects of running events including, but not limited to, the creation and execution of marketing plans, recruitment and coordination of volunteers, ticket sales & promotions, creating and running special events, coordinating local, regional and national media, and much more.  Our team is dedicated to providing a championship experience that players, coaches and fans won’t soon forget.
The Evansville Sports Corporation is blessed to have one of the best volunteer bases in the country.  Their dedication and passion for providing first class Hoosier hospitality to players, coaches and fans is second to none and is part of what makes the Evansville experience so special. 
The Evansville Sports Corporation represents the area as a premiere sports events destination at industry trade shows and is in constant communication with event organizers and governing bodies promoting Evansville. It’s essential to build a strong relationship and rapport with event organizers in the hopes of securing high profile events and The Evansville Sports Corporation is focused on this very important aspect of the business.

GLVC-Youth-ClinicCreating opportunities for our local kids to interact with the players and coaches participating in Evansville Sports Corporation events is an extremely important component of what we do.  More than 1100 local kids have participated in one of several youth clinics we have organized in conjunction with the events we have hosted and that number continues to grow each year.
