Sports Gold Coast provides a platform for business owners to unite in sport alongside all levels of government, along with both the education and sport sectors.
Our aim is for the Gold Coast to be known around the world for the strength of our sporting culture and our ability to host prestigious national and international events.
Incorporated June 2015, Sports Gold Coast Ltd is a not-for-profit organisation comprised of business leaders across the city, ranging from young entrepreneurs to established companies.
We are currently undertaking a wide range of sport projects and our members have access to an exclusive group of businesses, corporate identites, sport governing bodies and government members.
Each has a pivotal role to play in influencing the future of our city’s sporting culture, image and reputation.
WHAT WE DO
By bringing local sport and local business together Sports Gold Coast knows the enormous benefits both can achieve. Many Gold Coast businesses are already supporters of sport, however by being a part of the Sports Gold Coast network these businesses can realise so much more.
In a very short time span Sports Gold Coast has kicked some impressive goals – from creating the re-born Gold Coast NPLQ soccer club Gold Coast United, taking the annual Gold Coast Sports Star awards to new heights to assisting to bring Big Bash cricket to the Gold Coast. Sports Gold Coast has achieved a lot and has plenty more on the drawing board.
Are you a sporting organisation or business that deserves more media coverage. Sports Gold Coast has a growing media platform that can take your story to the entire Gold Coast. Our media team is focussed on all local sport and also highlighting the efforts of people who are succeeding on the sports field, in the boardroom and across both.
We are passionate about supporting our local grassroots clubs and organization to assist in advice, support and raising funds to enable them to continue to grow and be sustainable. With the support of the business community and donations we aim to launch a Sports Community Portal in the near future.
WOMEN IN SPORTS
Promoting Women in Sport is a key agenda for Sports Gold Coast. The development of Women’s sporting teams is an important step in gender diversity across all codes. Through partnering with Grass Roots sporting clubs, and providing awareness to business, Sports Gold Coast has connected support & funding towards promoting Women in Sport on the Gold Coast.
