With a combined economic impact of $280-million, Cleveland has been given an unprecedented opportunity to host multiple national sporting events. Over the next several years, the impact on Northeast Ohio will be significantly higher than the 2016 Republican National Convention.
Velocity is a community-wide initiative of Greater Cleveland Sports Commission to raise required funding and maximize the community impact of hosting some of the most significant events in sports. These events include:
All eyes will be on Cleveland, as our community will gain national exposure through these hosted events.
In order to leave a lasting legacy in our community, Velocity provides many opportunities for community engagement to extend each event’s footprint in Northeast Ohio. These programs will highlight important social issues such as diversity and inclusion, provide opportunities to under resourced populations and provide our Velocity partners with opportunities for engagement and involvement.
