As a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, the purpose of the Bluegrass Sports Commission is to attract and support new and existing sports events at any level such as the Bluegrass State Games to the Central Kentucky Area.

There are more than 300 sports commissions in the United States, currently. By working in close coordination with local CVB’s, other community organizations and venues, the BSC can be a leader for Central Kentucky.

Our Mission & Goal

Our mission is to recruit, stage and create sports events in Central Kentucky for the purposes of economic development and improving the quality of life for the citizens.

Our goal is to continue being a major driving force for positive growth in our region. We constantly work to innovate and create a vision for what Central Kentucky can do.


The signature event of the BSC is the Bluegrass State Games, which have taken place in central Kentucky since 1985.

In addition, the BSC manages other events as a major source of funding, which is then used to work on other projects beneficial to the community.


Since its inception in 2010, the BSC has assisted several events that have generated more than 20,000 room nights and millions of dollars of economic impact. From the Bluegrass State Games, to an NBA preseason game, to the Elks National Bowling tournament and national youth basketball tournaments, the BSC has worked with partners like the CVB and various venues to impact our region.
