The Sports Backers own and produce 13 events each year that include some of the largest and most successful of their kind in the country. We also work to support other sports tourism events owned and operated by non-profit organizations in the Richmond region. We form strategic partnerships with selected events that show significant progress for becoming major events. We also provide marketing grants to other organizations to help grow their events.
