Welcome to the Monroe County Sports Commission Website!

We have been recognized as one of the Top Minor League Markets by Sports Business Journal, it's no wonder that Rochester is regarded as one of the nation’s premier sports communities. Monroe County has a rich sports history at both the professional and amateur levels, playing home to the Rochester Red Wings, Rochester Americans, Rochester Rhinos, Rochester Knighthawks and Rochester Razor Sharks. All of the area Colleges, Universities, Section V, club and travel teams provide a strong variety of quality sports for everyone to enjoy. 

The Sports Commission works diligently to promote Monroe County through sports. Make no mistake that sports are an important piece of our community’s economic vitality and quality of life.
