    Can you say: Very sports heavy city.

    Can you say:

    Very sports heavy city.

    VS

    Sports based city.

    VS

    Sports involved city.


    Are these good ways to describe a city?

    I found examples of 'sporting city' on https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...ting%20city%22

    Not a teacher.

    As Matthew says, "sporting city" is common.

    These two possibilities are probably more common than your examples:
    sports-minded
    sports-oriented

    I would say it's a big sports town.
