The Big Ten Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments returns to Indianapolis and Bankers Life Fieldhouse starting today! This marks the 10th time that both tournaments have been hosted in Indy.
Indianapolis was the first city to host both tournaments in the same year. The 2016 edition serves as the 19th time the women’s tournament will be held in Indianapolis, while the men tip off in Indy for the tenth time.
The agreement between the Big Ten Conference and Indiana Sports Corp has Indianapolis as the host of future Big Ten Basketball events with the Men’s Tournament returning again in 2020 and 2022 and the Women’s Tournament returning from 2017 through 2022.
How great is it to live in a city where we regularly host great NCAA sporting events like the Womens and Mens Big 10 Tournaments Today the Women’s Tourney kicks off with Wisconsin and Northwestern tipping off at 1:30.
Indy relies heavily on community volunteers for these events…I’m working community hospitality at a couple of downtown hotels…want to know how? Contact me, it’s such a great opportunity to showcase our city and make a great impression on visitors.
