About Us

The Sioux Falls Sports Authority was formed in 2006 by community leaders to recruit major sporting events to the Sioux Falls area. The organization attracts international, national, regional and state sporting events by operating, leasing, enhancing or owning sports facilities in the Sioux Falls area. 

Since its formation, it has become an active member of The National Association of Sports Commissions (NASC) and has successfully attained its first significant event, the Summit League Conference Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments. The 2009 Summit League Tournaments was the first time ESPN broadcasted a “Live-Nationally Televised” event in Sioux Falls and South Dakota.
