The Dallas Sports Commission is a non-profit organization that attracts, retains and supports sports and entertainment events that position Dallas as the premier sports destination. Our efforts have significantly increased awareness of Dallas locally, nationally, and internationally, and have resulted in the Dallas metro area being recognized as the #1 visitor destination in the state of Texas and the #1 sports city in America as voted by The Sporting News!

Many things make Dallas the ultimate sports destination. From the great hotelsrestaurantsattractions, and facilities to the history, culture and sports passion; Dallas has it all. Centrally located in the United States, Dallas can be reached from each coast with a four hour flight or less into either Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport or Dallas Love Field. A temperate climate all year long coupled with unrivaled facilities such as the American Airlines Center, Cotton Bowl at Fair Park, the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas and AT&T Stadium make for a perfect host for any event large or small.

As the nation's ninth-largest city, Dallas is exciting, diverse and friendly - factors that contribute to its success as a leading sports and leisure destination. Host of the MLB World Series, NBA Finals, Super Bowl XLV and the 2014 NCAA Men's Final Four, as well as home to the Heart of Dallas Bowl and Cotton Bowl Classic, numerous marathons, Dallas Cup, the Red River Rivalry, and endless amateur, collegiate and Olympic championship events: There's never been a more exciting time to play in Dallas.


For rights holders who think big, Dallas is the host city that creates legendary experiences. Our passion for sports of all kinds coupled with a strong heritage of iconic athletes, events and innovative sports leaders provides the foundation you need for a successful event.


"The dedication of the Dallas Sports Commission is the underlying reason why we continue to select Dallas to host the Mizuno Lone Star Classic National Qualifier over two weekends at the Dallas Convention Center. We are very fortunate to be able to work with Monica Paul and her staff as their insight and experience have been instrumental in helping solve all types of challenges including facilities, hotels, production details, promotions, and support personnel. Since 2008 the event has grown by more than 53% and the Dallas Sports Commission has been professional, innovative, attentive and responsive, making sure that all of our needs in Dallas are met both in the planning and execution of the event."
Glen Lietzke, Executive Director
Mizuno Lone Star Classic 

"The client's best interests are always in mind. I have to say my experiences over the past 10 years have been nothing less than extraordinary. They continually exceed my expectations through their diligence and exceptional customer service. They are one of the reasons our events will be in Dallas for the twenty-seventh consecutive year!"
