New Sport Surrey website launched

Tourism Surrey and City of Surrey aim to highlight the city's state-of-the-art sports facilities.

The City of Surrey and Tourism Surrey have launched a new website in support of Sport Surrey which will serve as a central resource to assist in advancing bid submissions for large sporting events held throughout the city.

“Sport tourism is one of the fastest-growing segments of Canada’s tourism industry which provides both social and economic benefits,” said Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts. “Since implementing a Sport Tourism Strategy in 2009, we have made ongoing investments in sport infrastructure across the City with the goal of continually attracting top-notch sporting events.”

The website www.sportsurrey.com contains a wealth of information on Surrey’s state-of-the-art sport facilities, scheduled sporting events, and important information to enable successful sport hosting.

“The Sport Surrey website will provide sporting event organizers with critical information needed to launch a successful bid”, said Coun. Linda Hepner, chair of the Parks, Recreation and Sport Tourism Committee

“Our hope is that more local, national and international events will realize that Surrey has the resources required to stage successful competitions.”

Cathy James, executive director of Tourism Surrey, said they wanted to make it as easy as possible for sporting event planners to find everything they need to know about Surrey and its state-of-the-art facilities in one centralized location.

“Sport Surrey can also help with everything from site inspections and accommodation searches to promotional support and volunteer resources. It’s truly one stop shopping,” James said.
