Tourism Nanaimo has a budget of $20,000 annually to assist groups hosting sporting events and tournaments (defined as a series of games or athletic contests) through its sport event hosting grants program.
Event hosting grants are primarily intended to support sport organizations hosting smaller-scale events at a local, regional and inter-regional level that are hosted in Nanaimo & Region. For sporting organizations bidding on events at a Provincial, Inter-Provincial, or National level, or for sport event organizers (for-profit or non-profit) interested in creating new sporting events in Nanaimo and Region, please contact Tourism Nanaimo prior to creating the event or during the bidding/creation phase to discuss eligibility for assistance (financial and otherwise) through other grants funding opportunities.
Sport event organizers who are hosting a sporting event within a 24 month period of their application are eligible to apply for a sport event hosting grant through Tourism Nanaimo. Grant applications will be accepted and evaluated on the following schedule:
