Stand Out in Leduc

There’s a reason why sporting events held in Leduc stand out from the rest.

The City of Leduc is a growing community in one of the fastest growing metropolitan regions in Canada. Known for its vibrancy, community spirit, and global connections, Leduc is composed of a community full of young, hardworking people that values volunteerism and a passion for sports. We boast our community because they are our greatest advantage, and your greatest asset when you choose Leduc as your host city. With a team so dedicated to your event’s success, you’ll be sure to attract attention, make noise, and most of all, stand out!

In addition to our engaged community, our strategic location is a popular incentive for our athletes and fans. Nestled beside the Edmonton International Airport and the CANAMEX Trade Corridor (Highway 2), you are only a few minutes away from your next event.
