Scott Dupree grew up watching and playing sports, now he brings sports to Wake County as the executive director of the Greater Raleigh Sports Alliance. Sports are a major part of any city's tourism plan, and our area has a sterling reputation as event hosts.
We talked to Scott about the economic impact of sports in our area, the rise of e-sports, our areas venues (including soon-to-come and wish list items) and the developments around them, all of the great sports partners the GRSA works with, and what events we host and would like to host in the future.
Scott even stuck to the theme of the season by pointing out a water feature truly does make a city a more attractive host site for any event!
