SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Utah, known as the State of Sport, will host over 13 national and international events during the 2022-23 winter season. Since its inception, the Utah Sports Commission has been tasked with building upon Utah’s Olympic and Paralympic legacy. Partnering with national governing bodies (NGB) and world-class venues on competitions of this caliber contributes to the success of a future bid and shows that Utah is always “ready, willing, and able.”
“In 2018, Salt Lake City-Utah was named ‘America’s Choice’ to host a future Games,” said Jeff Robbins, president and CEO of the Utah Sports Commission, in a statement. “Aside from being the home of two winter NGBs, U.S. Ski & Snowboard and US Speedskating, our state also constantly utilizes the infrastructure that was constructed for its Olympics.”
The 2002 Winter Games provided Utah with exceptional natural and man-made venues, all of which will house the upcoming national and international competitions.
The Utah Sports Commission was created to be a catalyst for Utah in its Olympic legacy efforts and to help enhance Utah’s economy, image, and quality of life through the attraction, promotion, and development of national and international sports. Since the 2002 Olympics and Paralympics, the Utah Sports Commission has attracted nearly 900 major events to the state.
