Sin City Classic



Sin City Classic
 

The Sin City Classic Sports Festival is a multi-day LGBTQ sports festival hosted annually by The Greater Los Angeles Softball Association (GLASA) in Las Vegas during the four days prior to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Started in 2008, the event has grown to become the largest annual LGBTQ sporting event in the world.

Each year nearly 7,000 LGBTQ athletes and another 2,000 fans and allies supporting 20-plus sports make Sin City Classic one of their must-attend events each year. The festival provides an open atmosphere for LGBTQ athletes to connect and compete through various sports over the course of four days of competition and social activities.

GLASA is a Los Angeles-based 501(c)(3) sports organization. GLASA owns and operates the Sin City Classic Sports Festival and works closely with more than twenty other LGBTQ sports league partners for the festival.

What other LGBT sporting events are going on?
A list of all participating sports can be found on the
Sports page.

 

Where can I get information on the other sports?
You can visit the home page of any sport by clicking on their icon on the
Sports page. Here you can get information on things like registration, rules and the venue(s) where each sport will be held.


Why is Darts listed as two separate sports?
Darts is listed separately because we have two different organizations running the two different darts tournaments. Soft Tip darts are what most people know from using plastic-tipped darts with a digital board in a bar. Steel Tip darts use a steel-tipped dart with a cork dartboard.

 

Where are the other sport participants staying and partying?
The Flamingo Las Vegas and The LINQ will be the joint official host hotels for all participating sports. There will be 1,100 rooms reserved for the peak nights of the tournament and they typically sell out every year.
