DSC was the natural progression for DuPage County in the sports and recreation space, with a focus on collaborative sports development that serves athletes, planners and the local community.   


Created by the not-for-profit organization DuPage Convention & Visitors Bureau (DCVB), the DuPage Sports Commission (DSC) was founded in 2019 to harness the power of sports tourism on behalf of DuPage County’s 38 communities and one million residents. The DSC is uniquely positioned to advocate for and actively impact the health of DuPage communities through strategic growth as an amateur, youth and professional sporting destination.

No other market has the reach of sports — youth win through activity and competition; businesses win through destination enhancement and media attention; and communities win through tourism dollars. When the DSC succeeds, so do local youth programs, regional commerce, and area families.

Through partnerships, collaboration and transparency, the DSC will continue to build a fully-realized sports tourism program with long-term sustainability serving DuPage County.
