Utah's Olympic Legacy
Salt Lake City’s 2002 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games engaged hundreds of thousands of spectators and over 2.1 billion global broadcast viewers. Since 2002, more than 50 international World Cup or World Championship events have been held in Utah, and the U.S. Olympic Committee has selected Salt Lake City as "America's Choice" for a future Olympic bid.
The Utah Sports Commission works with partners on bid development, volunteer coordination, sponsorship, event logistics planning, event promotion, and other related services.
The Sports Commission was chartered to manage the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games legacy Volunteer Database. This valuable resource provides well-trained volunteers to support sporting events.
The Sports Commission has facilitated the creation of TEAM UTAH which consists of all entities within Utah working with the Sports Commission to improve the state through sports.
Through successful bid efforts with our TEAM UTAH partnering organizations, hundreds of events have been landed statewide, which have generated millions in economic impact to the state, many of which have been showcased to a national and international television audience.
