The world’s largest annual LGBTQ sporting event enters its 13th year with over 8,000 participants competing in Las Vegas in 24 sports.
Produced by the Greater Los Angeles Softball Association (GLASA) and presented by Lexus, the Sin City Classic Sports Festival will take place in Las Vegas January 16-19, 2020. This year’s Festival adds four new sports: basketball, indoor rowing, spikeball, and steel tip darts - bringing the total number of sports participating in the Festival to 24.
“Each year the Sin City Classic continues to grow and brings even more LGBTQ athletes, allies and fans to Las Vegas for a weekend filled with competition and camaraderie. Our nightly events continue to get bigger and better, and we’re happy to be able to offer attendees the opportunity to come together and bond of sport,” said Ken Scearce, tournament director for the Sin City Classic.
Each January the festival brings together LGBTQ sports associations from around the world in order for LGBTQ athletes, fans and allies to enjoy a weekend full of competition, companionship and fun. In addition to a full roster of sporting competitions, the festival includes nightly social events, including an Opening Night registration party and the Closing Night celebration, which will be held at the LINQ Promenade’s Brooklyn Bowl.
The Federation of Gay Games has been a strong supporter of the Sin City Classic for many years, with many of its leaders actively taking part. In 2020, several FGG Board members will be represented, and the 2022 Gay Games 11 in Hong Kong will be aggressively promoted at future Sin City Classic Festivals.
