Savannah Sports Council Launches New Website, Logo for 20th Anniversary

SAVANNAH, Ga. – A new website and logo was released this week in honor of the Savannah Sports Council’s 20th anniversary. The updated look will refresh the branding of this council, a division of Visit Savannah and the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce that has been booking and planning sports-related tourism events in Savannah for the past 20 years.

“We want our new website to position Savannah as a world-class sports events destination,” said Ben Wilder, director of the Sports Council. “It will serve as a sales tool to bring people and their sporting events to our city, as well as a resource for those events.”

The new logo was designed to look more modern, with the Sports Council initials (SSC) forming the lines on a circle that resembles a ball. The new website,, features streamlined navigation, a sports calendar of events section, a press room, a sports facility guide and more. This is the first independent website exclusively for the SSC.

The Sports Council was established in 1993 and in 2012 it booked more than 44,541 room nights for sporting events that included the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon & Half Marathon, YMCA Gymnastics National Championship and more.
