Nashville Sports Council (NSC) Event Support Program
The Driving Force of Sports in Nashville, the Nashville Sports Council (NSC) offers a number of options for event assistance for sporting events in the Middle Tennessee region. Since 1992, the NSC serves as the catalyst for sports in the Nashville area. Below is a list of areas where the NSC can assist and partner with any organization. The NSC’s main priority is to recruit and host its own event roster, thus limiting the time the NSC staff and volunteers can devote to events outside of those hosted by the NSC. Events seeking the assistance of the NSC should meet the NSC’s requirements which include but are not limited to directly impacting the economy of the region, improving the quality of life for area residents, and keeping our area youth active in sports.
Each event is unique in how a partnership can be developed with the NSC. We encourage organizations to join the NSC’s membership program and/or support the NSC’s youth initiative, the Good Sports Program, which supports youth sports in the Middle Tennessee region.
