Background Discussion
  • CVB applied for, and subsequently received approval for, two grants from the Florida Sports Foundation.  The CVB was awarded $10,000 for each of these two events (for a total of $20,000): 
    • Development Academy Winter Showcase & Nike Friendlies (Soccer Tournament at Premier Sports Campus, which was held Dec 10-16, 2013.)
    • Super Y League North American Finals (Soccer Tournament at IMG Academy, which was held Dec 5-10, 2013)
  • No local matching dollars needed for these grants.
  • Florida Sports Foundation Grants are evaluated based on estimated economic impact projections and post-event reports.
  • These funds will be used for the continuation of sponsorship and promotion of sports events in Manatee County.
  • Sports events provide a significant economic impact to the County.
