The Erie Sports Commission (ESC) is committed to promoting the Erie region as a prime destination for sports and recreation. The major goals of the ESC are to attract, create, support, and host sporting and recreational events that have a positive economic impact on the region, and assist in maximizing the potential of all regional sports facilities and venues. The ESC will strive to enhance the image of Erie by showcasing the community, promote wellness through healthy lifestyles, and improve the quality of life for community members of all ages.
ESC interns work side-by-side with staff on a variety of tasks in the fields of event management and marketing and communications. These internships allow students to work directly with knowledgeable and experienced sports executives, learning first-hand all that goes in to sports event acquisition.
