Sport is a major economic driver in Coffs Harbour which injects around $30 million a year into the local economy. 

Coffs Harbour City Council is committed to bringing world-class sporting teams and events to the City as well as assisting grass roots sport in the Community. 

In 2001, Coffs Harbour City Council set up the Coffs Harbour Sports Unit to focus specifically on developing sporting opportunities in the City.  As part of a broader Council restructure at the end of 2014, the Sports Unit has now merged to become part of the new Stadium and Major Events Section of Council's City Prosperity group.

Now known as Stadium and Major Events, this areas role includes:

1. Manage Coffs Harbour's sporting grounds

2. Manage major sporting events in the city

The Stadium and Major Events section has held major sporting events at C.ex Coffs International Stadium in Coffs Harbour, including: The Federation of International Touch Football Touch World Cup,  NRL Preseason Trial matches, the Australian Women's Football team Olympic Qualifiers, Country vs City NRL matches, the Australasian Police & Emergency Services Games, AFL NAB Challenge matches and Nitro Circus. 

C.ex C.ex Coffs International Stadium also plays host to long standing events in the City including the National and State Girls and Boys Football Championships, Ella 7s Indigenous Rugby Union Tournament, National Touch League and the National OZTAG Championships.

The Stadium and Major Events team also plays a major role in attracting elite sporting teams to use the Coffs Harbour Elite Training Centre at Novotel Pacific Bay Resort, including the Wallibies, the Matildas, the South Sydney Rabbitohs, the Gold Coast Titans and the Sydney Swans, who in conjunction with these camps also participate in public appearances around the City.
