Sport Surrey debuts new modern website

SURREY, BC – The City of Surrey and Tourism Surrey have launched a brand 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 in Canada is growing rapidly, providing social and economical benefits. A Sport Tourism Strategy was implemented in 2009 by Surrey which includes continual investments into sport infrastructure including the recently built Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre, a world-class facility that includes an Olympic size competition pool in the Southeast area of Surrey. The goal of the strategy is to attract top-notch sporting events from national to international.

The website's new, modern clean design 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 including the resources available and the attractions Surrey has to offer for visitors.

“We 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”, said Cathy James, Executive Director of Tourism Surrey. “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.”

Sport Surrey is a partnership between the City of Surrey and Tourism Surrey. The ultimate goal of the new and improved website is to provide ample information coupled with a seamless user experience for all visitors from the Professional Event Organizer to Event Participators and Avid Sport Spectator, all in an effort to promote the city of Surrey as a premier sport host destination.
