In this month’s edition of Fox 8’s Cleveland’s Own, Matt Kaulig sits down with David Gilbert, President and CEO of the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission.

Since 2000, Greater Cleveland Sports Commission (GCSC) is responsible for attracting over 200 sporting events which provide over $843 million in economic activity to Northeast Ohio.

GCSC serves to measurably improve the economy of Greater Cleveland and enrich the community by attracting, creating, managing, and enhancing significant sporting and competitive events. It supports the local economy, utilizes sports as a vehicle to forward community agendas, and maintains a goal of producing events that are more successful when held in Cleveland than in other cities.

GCSC played a critical role in ensuring the 2021 NFL Draft was hosted by Cleveland.
