JAXSPORTS is a non-profit, membership organization established in partnership with the City of Jacksonville and Gator Bowl Sports to serve as the mainframe for the growth and development of sporting events in Northeast Florida.
The mission of JAXSPORTS is to enhance and positively impact the quality of life and community pride, along with generating economic impact and growth for Northeast Florida through professional and amateur sports. Our values and goals reflect this mission.
Support Sports in Jacksonville
Jacksonville is a major sports destination, home to the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars, the PGA Tour's signature event - THE PLAYERS, the 26.2 with Donna, Florida-Georgia Game and TaxSlayer Bowl. These signature events contribute to over $250 million in economic impact to the Northeast Florida community each year.
Attract and Enhance Major Sporting Events in Jacksonville
The mission of JAXSPORTS is not only to support and enhance the signature events that already exist in Northeast Florida, but to also recruit and attract new sporting events to our city. Using public and private facilities and partnerships throughout the local sporting landscape, JAXSPORTS has helped to recruit events such as the NCAA Basketball Tournament Regional, the USA Track and Field Junior Olympics and the Navy-Notre Dame football game.
JAXSPORTS is a member driven organization and hosts membership events throughout the year. Ranging from watch parties to cocktail hours, Q&As at a local bar or even a chance to Learn to Curl at the US Curling National Championships - JAXSPORTS Membership events get you access to sports in Jacksonville like never before!
