THE 11TH ANNUAL SIN CITY CLASSIC ANNOUNCES
18 SPORTS FOR THE 2018 FESTIVAL


With over 6,000 participants and fans, the Sin City Classic is one of the world’s largest annual LGBTQ sporting events.

LOS ANGELES
The Greater Los Angeles Softball Association (GLASA) announced that 18 LGBTQ sports associations have registered to participate in the 2018 Sin City Classic Sports Festival. In its 11 years, the annual sporting event has grown to be one of the largest annual LGBTQ sports festivals in the world and includes teams from across the United States and around the world. This year’s festivities will be held January 11-14, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada, with the athletes and guests being hosted at the LINQ and Flamingo hotels.
“The Sin City Classic provides a fun and safe playing field for the participating LGBTQ athletes to both connect and compete over the course of our four-day event. We encourage all athletes to “Play You” by being themselves, embracing competition and having a good time both on and off the field.” says Ken Scearce, Sin City Classic Tournament Director.

Each January LGBTQ athletes, fans and allies descend upon Sin City for a weekend full of competition, companionship and, most of all, fun. The 18 sports that will be participating in this year’s festival include: Billiards, Body Building, Bowling, Bridge, Cheer, Diving, Dodgeball, Flag Football, Frisbee, Golf, Ice Hockey, Kickball, Running, Soccer, Softball, Tennis, Volleyball and Wrestling. In addition to the sports competition, attendees are treated to a weekend full of hosted events, including an Opening Night registration extravaganza, nightly events at local bars and a Closing Ceremony celebration event.

The Sin City Classic began 11 years ago as a softball tournament, but over the years the tournament has grown to include over 200 participating softball teams as well as an additional 24 sports having participated throughout the years. As GLASA proudly celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2018, the organization looks forward to making the 2018 event the best-ever experience for all those dedicated athletes who participate.

“Since 1978, GLASA has strived hard in its mission to provide a safe and fun environment to encourage participation in athletics. As we reach our 40th anniversary, we are proud to have grown from a tiny softball league to an organization with dozens of volunteers dedicated to our cause. Not only do we have over 35 local softball teams participating year round, but our Sin City Classic Sports Festival allows us to reach so many more people. We are so excited for the 2018 Sin City Classic!” says GLASA Commissioner Larry Ruiz.
