The Kentucky Sports Authority, an agency of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts & Heritage Cabinet, was created in 2005 to actively pursue any and all athletic events with the goal of bringing them to the Commonwealth – resulting in jobs, tourism and economic development. The Kentucky Sports Authority is also responsible for the state’s sports marketing initiatives, leading “TEAM Kentucky,” a coordinated effort of Kentucky’s communities, and the state as a whole, to build the Commonwealth’s image in the sports industry.
The KSA and our TEAM Kentucky partners are eager to demonstrate what we can do for your sports event. We understand that, as with any business, you need a partner who understands your needs and exceeds your expectations.
