JUST DON'T Success in sports comes naturally when you hit the sweet spot. If you're looking for the right place for your next sporting event, Cobb County is your destination. We're just 10 minutes from downtown Atlanta. And with a large variety of sports venues available, Cobb County offers a perfect combination of affordability and services to create a truly sweet experience. igh fives, fist bumps, group hugs and an infinite amount of will and determination, that's what Cobb County is about – especially when you start talking about sports. Cobb is already recognized for its winning combination of facilities and customer service and for being a sports power alley, with three major league teams calling Cobb County home – Major League Soccer's Atlanta United, Major League Lacrosse's Atlanta Blaze, and Major League Baseball's Atlanta Braves. Cobb is not only a power alley for major league sports, but also for international and national sporting events for youth and adults. Perfect Game, Triple Crown Sports, the Korean Paralympic Team training, and Offense-Defense Bowl are only a few of the many sporting events that taken place in Cobb. With the rollout of the Cobb Sports Alli- ance, a division of Cobb Travel & Tourism, the Cobb community has a new focus on sports-related activities and tourism. "Cobb Travel & Tourism and the Cobb Sports Alliance are positioned to play an even greater role in the economic impact of Cobb County," says Holly Quinlan, President and CEO of Cobb Travel & Tourism. The Cobb Sports Alliance creates and sup- ports a complete sports, visitor and commu- nity experience by leveraging Cobb's assets in new, out-of-the-box ways. That is easy to do when you have more than 100 million square feet of space dedicated to sports throughout the county. The task becomes even easier when there are numerous attrac- tions, hundreds of restaurants, 13,500 hotel rooms and 31,000 hospitality partners ready and waiting to support coaches, players and their families while they are visiting. Sports are big business year-round, and you don't have to be a Braves fan to recognize that value. The economic impact of all levels of sports is tremendous. Cobb is fortunate to have all those age groups of athletes covered, from youth and recreational to collegiate and professional. n H Cobb County - Atlanta's Sweet Spot For Sports Rachel Rogers, Sports Sales/ Services Manager "Cobb County is the desti- nation for sports tourism. We're just 10 minutes from downtown Atlanta. And with a wide variety of world-class sporting venues available, Cobb County offers a perfect combination of affordability and services to create a truly sweet experience.
