About Dallas Sports Commission

Dallas is one of the premier sports destinations in the country, and the Dallas Sports Commission (DSC) plays a significant role in attracting sports events, competitions, and conferences to our great city.

The DSC has been involved with the planning and execution of major sporting events in Dallas since 2015, which includes the NFL Draft, NHL Draft, the NCAA Women's Final Four, WrestleMania, and the College Football Playoff National Championship. Since its inception, the DSC has hosted 387 events worth $2.7 billion in economic impact and over 5.37 million event attendees.

Involving the community is very important to the DSC, as we look to present events that will positively impact the quality of life for Dallas residents. We book events that have affected the DFW metroplex for years through legacy projects and community initiatives. We are also proud to spearhead the Dallas Regional Spelling Bee and offer other sports-related community initiatives.

Our future event bookings are projected to have a $1.39 billion economic impact with 2.2 million attendees.
