The mission of the Gwinnett Sports Commission (GSC) is to foster economic development through coordinating and developing Gwinnett’s role as a leading site for sports events involving youth, collegiate, amateur and professional organizations.
Gwinnett is home to two of metro Atlanta’s premier minor league teams – baseball’s Gwinnett Braves (AAA affiliate of the Atlanta Braves) and hockey’s Atlanta Gladiators (ECHL affiliate of the Boston Bruins). The G-Braves play in the state-of-the-art Coolray Field, while the Gladiators thrill the crowds at the Infinite Energy Arena.
The Georgia Swarm, Gwinnett’s new professional lacrosse team, is a part of the National Lacrosse League and will begin their first season at the Infinite Energy Arena starting in January of 2016.
