Our Story

In October, 2014 the Dallas Sports Commission transitioned from the sports marketing department of the Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau. Monica Paul was named Executive Director, becoming one of only four women in the country to lead a large-market sports commission. The DSC provides rights holders with first-rate event operations and services as needed for their events.

Our Logo

The Dallas Sports Commission logo is a symbol of accomplishment - of the hard work and teamwork that turns players into champions. Of the passion and pride that makes Dallas a city where big wins happen. Its design is inspired by championship banners, which are representations of the triumph of victory.

The "D" itself is derived from the DCVB's logo, and takes visual cues from collegiate letterman jackets. Finally, the stitching on the outside border of the banner adds an additional element of dimension to the icon. When working together, each piece of the logo is intended to invoke a feeling of pride and leave behind this city's legacy in the realm of sports.

"The facilities, hotels, and local transportation coupled with the professionalism of the Dallas Sports Commission staff makes an event held in Dallas a winner before the first whistle is blown!" Tom Pingel Senior Director USA Volleyball
