Virginia is for Sports Lovers On behalf of Virginia Tourism Corporation and our statewide Sports Virginia partners, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you, your athletes, and families. Whether you are visiting for the first time or frequently host tournaments in the Commonwealth, there is always something new to discover when you visit Virginia. Sports Virginia is a statewide collaboration of professionals from local convention and visitor bureaus, sports commissions, parks and recreation offices and facilities. The Commonwealth has been hosting successful sporting events for decades and we are committed to providing excellent service. Home to state-of-the-art venues for all types of sporting events, Virginia is the perfect location for any type and size of competition. Located midway between New York and Florida, Virginia is the gateway to the South. Easily accessible by major highway systems, Amtrak rail service and nine airports providing multiple affordable options for athletes and their families. Visiting Virginia has never been more convenient.
