Celebrating Limitless Opportunities…

When SDEF embarked upon this ambitious vision of hosting the Summer Olympics in San Diego, it ignited an energy within the community that truly was felt from corner to corner.

Indeed, San Diego is a World Class Cosmopolitan Center for International Sport, disruptive innovation, global trade, sustainable technologies and multi cultural exchange.

SDEF put forth a strong bid that was hailed as “innovative” and “well designed” with a goal of opening our region to the intense bid process

This bid process ranged from site visits by the United States Olympic Committee leadership to creating an in depth bid document that put forth the essence of San Diego and its plethora of winning qualities

Although our region was not selected, the process of bidding allowed SDEF and the Community to leverage this process and win multiple Global and National events including the ANOC World Beach Games, the XXIII ANOC General Session, the USA 2017 and 2018 USA Masters Games, to name a few.
