About NASC

As the non-profit 501(c)3 trade association for the sport tourism industry in the United States since 1992, the NASC is the most trusted and essential resource for sports commissions, sports destinations, vendors, and sports event owners. We believe sport tourism and the events that our members own and host have the power to transform society for the better. Our passion is to help sport tourism professionals achieve previously unimaginable levels of performance. We do this by nurturing a community of smart, creative, and interesting people: our members.

Our organizational members are sports commissions, destination marketing organizations (DMOs), parks and recreation departments, chambers of commerce, national governing bodies (NGBs), multi-sport organizations (MSOs), and vendors to the sport tourism industry. More than 2,500 individuals from more than 700 member organizations lead, manage, and execute sports events of all shapes and sizes - from bowling tournaments to the Super Bowl and U-12 girls soccer tournaments to the Women's World Cup. Together, they create opportunities for athletes young and old to participate in the sports they love and lead healthy, active lifestyles.
