Central Iowa Sports District

Bringing Top-Notch Sporting Events to Central Iowa

The Central Iowa Sports District was developed to work specifically with state, regional, national and collegiate sports organizations. An expansion of the original Ames Area Sports Commission, our mission is to recruit, retain and grow professional, collegiate and amateur sporting events for several communities in and around central Iowa.

Why Ames?

Located in the heart of the Midwest, the cities and towns that make up central Iowa are filled with tradition, discovery, diversity, and of course, the Iowa State University Cyclones. But beyond our college-town pride, our communities support a number of celebrated seasonal and annual sporting events, and have played host to some of the nation’s most exclusive athletic competitions.

Our Team is Ready

We’re ready with the assist to make your event a complete success, on and off the field, court or course. Think of us as an extension of your planning team, helping you locate hotel accommodations, venues and vendors; securing sponsorships; and increasing participation and attendance for your event. The next time you’re looking to play, give us a call.
