LOS ANGELES, December 18, 2017 — Today, 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 Jan. 11-14, 2018, in Las Vegas 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. GLASA celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2018.
