The nonprofit group named several of the new teams and venues yesterday that have been added to its roster. It also announced that at least three of the six U.S. professional sports leagues have signed on to the Green Sports Alliance; the specific leagues that joined will be disclosed later this summer.
The alliance is focused on reducing the environmental impact of pro sports, its venues and operations, and getting fans to join the effort. The group wants to build upon and accelerate progress made by leading teams to manage waste and increase recycling at sports events, make facilities more energy efficient and engage the millions who attend and watch games.
