Louisville, KentuckyThe best sports town in America!

Sports in Louisville

Living in Louisville unofficially requires you to choose a side from September to December: Louisville Cardinals red or Kentucky Wildcats blue. No matter which side your allegiance falls on, it’s no secret that Louisville has one of the most passionate fan bases for a variety of sports. While football, basketball, and horse racing may reign supreme here in Louisville, Kentucky, it has been clearly shown over time why the city should be mentioned in discussions regarding the title of ‘Sports Capital of America’.

In 2014, Rory McIlroy soared to victory at the PGA Championship right here in Louisville. The city has also hosted Ryder Cup, Ironman Triathlon, plenty of NCAA national championship events, and of course, The Kentucky Derby every year. Louisville has done such an amazing job at handling large sporting events, and talks of a professional NBA team have gained a lot of traction.

Karen Williams, the President of the Louisville Convention and Visitors Bureau, rsaid in an interview with Louisville Business First that sports is one of the top five industries held in Louisville, and reiterated that sports “is huge” for the area. A big reason for this is the development of some of the best facilities in the country, including the KFC Yum! Center in downtown Louisville.
