Organized in August of 1988, the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation (GNOSF) is a non-profit 501 (c) (4) organization whose mission is to attract and manage sporting events that have a positive economic impact on the Greater New Orleans area.
The GNOSF not only has attracted hundreds of sporting events to our area, but our coordinating efforts guarantee their success. With every event the GNOSF brings to the area, the beneficiaries of our efforts are wide in scope, including the hospitality industry, city, parish and state taxes, business community, local youth, facilities and the event organizers themselves.
