Virginia's Richmond Region is a sports-loving community with passionate fans and competitive athletes. With small-town charm, big-city entertainment and array of state-of-the-art facilities, we're sure to be the right fit for your next competition. Richmond is home to the Greater Richmond Convention Center, which is the largest in Virginia, River City Sportsplex featuring 12 artificial turf fields and the Collegiate School Aquatics Center, a 50-meter competition pool used in the 2008 Olympic trials. Outside of competition, athletes, coaches and fans can experience more than 1,000 restaurants, 18,000 hotel rooms, class-IV rapids running through downtown, miles of urban trails, over 90 attractions and 400 years of history. It's no wonder Outside Magazine named Richmond “The Best River Town in America.”
