Our grant support program helps sport event organizers host their event in Burnaby. This financial support assists organizers who chose to stage their event using facilities and services in Burnaby – the Sport City.
Successful applications depend on total number of room nights generated by the event, the level of competition, economic impact, tourism benefits and the ability of the event to leave a legacy in Burnaby.
Grant allocations depend on available funding in the annual Sport Burnaby budget, so submitting an application doesn’t necessarily mean funding will be granted.
Please submit your Sport Burnaby Grant application a minimum of three months before your event dates, and review the Sport Burnaby Grant Guidelines below before applying.
