Summit League Tourneys Boost Sioux Falls Economy

The Sioux Falls economy received an $8.5 million boost from the recent Summit League men's and women's basketball tournaments.

The report from the Sioux Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Sioux Falls Sports Authority calculates about $4.5 million in direct sales and about $4 million in indirect sales. The figures take into account taxes, lodging, transportation, food, entertainment, shopping, organizer spending and media coverage.

The Summit League Championships in March drew a total of 37,304 fans to Sioux Falls Arena in South Dakota's largest city. North Dakota State won the men's tournament and the University of South Dakota won the women's title.

Next year's championships will be held at the new Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls.
