Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any programs to support my post-event recap work?

As part of the CSTA (Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance), Sport Surrey can perform a STEAM report (Sport Tourism Economic Assessment Model) on your event to determine its overall economic impact.

Are there any physical support items that are available during my event?

As a benefit from the 2012 BC Game legacy funds, Sport Surrey owns a multi-purpose sport tournament mobile trailer that is available to book for sports groups holding events in the city. This trailer makes a great set-up tool for your headquarters or check-in location. The trailer is delivered to the event by City of Surrey staff and acts as a mobile power station, sound system, first aid tent, registration desk and more! It comes equipped with a water filtration system and additional event tools.

Is there any promotional support available?

We’ll send press releases to media partners, list the event on the Sport Surrey website and Tourism Surrey calendar of events. We will also promote the sports event through the popular Tourism Surrey social media channels to help get you maximum exposure.

Can you provide participant welcome packages?

Sport Surrey is pleased to offer participants a welcome package containing a Visitors Guide and map. We’ll get you other useful promotional materials, if available.

Are there any grants available for my event?

In May 2017, Sport Surrey announced a new hosting grant program for events coming into the City of Surrey. Talk to us today to see if a hosting grant is available for your event. Sport Surrey is also able to provide contacts to organizations with grant opportunities including ViaSport BC.

How do we find the right hotel(s) for our sports event?

Need accommodation for a visiting sports team, or an entire league of athletes coming to Surrey? We help event organizers by working with accommodation providers to get rates and availability for the event. Ultimately, you’ll select your accommodation provider – but Sport Surrey will work directly with the property on your behalf to get additional benefits!

Can Sport Surrey help find the best site or facility for our event?

Want a site inspection of potential venues for your sporting event? Sport Surrey is more than happy to build and co-ordinate an itinerary based around your needs. If you need any other information on suitable facilities in Surrey, just contact us directly. Sport Surrey will communicate with City of Surrey facility staff with regards to event requirements to make sure all your bases are covered!

Can I get help with bid packages to host events?

Whether you’re organizing a charity sports tournament, marathon or a multi-sport competition, putting together a comprehensive event bid can be an intimidating process. Sport Surrey can help you in creating your bid package. To get started, we have complied a fully customizable bid template. This will help participants get all the information they need in a concise package.
