Who are We?

We believe that Seattle can be a world-class sports community. That's why we are here. We're building community through sports, from professionals to amateurs and participants to fans. We believe sports can be a catalyst for local business growth, healthy locals, and a strong and sustaining pride in our community and our environment. We are committed to the mission of the Seattle Sports Commission - to working with local businesses, sports teams and organizations, community groups, and our neighbors. We are committed to getting things done. We're building support to attract the world's biggest sports events because we believe in the power of sports.
