Summit League Tournament Staying In Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Summit League Basketball Tournament will be staying in Sioux Falls for at least the next five years. On Tuesday, the Summit League, along with the Sioux Falls Sports Authority announced a new five-year contract extension with a five-year option to keep the tournament in Sioux Falls.

As part of the new agreement, the Summit League Tournament will move to the new Denny Sanford Premier Center when it opens in 2015.

The Summit League Tournament has continued to grow since coming to Sioux Falls six years ago. In 2012 the tournament set a new attendance record with 40,269 specatators attending the event.

"This long-term agreement is a testament to the great support that the community of Sioux Falls has shown for our marquee event," Summit League Commissioner Tom Douple said. "It also speaks to the outstanding support from all our tournament sponsors and the professionalism of the Sioux Falls Sports Authority and its volunteers. The efforts of those groups have been instrumental in creating an incredible event for our league."

"Six years ago, the Sioux Falls Sports Authority set our sights on bringing national and international sporting events to Sioux Falls. The Summit League basketball tournament delivered on that promise," Sioux Falls Sports Authority Chair Kevin Lampe said.

The agreement will likely keep the tournament in Sioux Falls until the year 2022.
