History


The Sioux Falls Sports Authority was formed in 2006 by community leaders to recruit major sporting events to the Sioux Falls area. The organization attracts international, national, regional and state sporting events by operating, leasing, enhancing or owning sports facilities in the Sioux Falls area. It is run by a board of directors made up of 15 community members, an executive director and project director.

Since its formation, it has become an active member of The National Association of Sports Commissions (NASC) and has successfully attained its first significant event, the Summit League Conference Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments. The 2009 Summit League Tournaments was the first time ESPN broadcasted a “Live-Nationally Televised” event in Sioux Falls and South Dakota. The 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 Summit League tournaments were overwhelming successes. In 2015, the tournament drew a record number of fans in its first year at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center.
