|The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is
to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.
On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to
host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.
Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region
and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to
the World Cup.
The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams
