The NCAA is bringing eight sports championships to the St. Louis area over the next five years. The collegiate athletic association announced a package of playoffs Wednesday that St. Louis will host between 2015 and 2018.
The St. Louis Sports Commission prepared the city’s successful bids. Vice President of Events Chris Roseman says NCAA athletes will be competing at numerous venues across the metro area.
The St. Louis region is kicking off what the St. Louis Sports Commission is calling its version of "March Madness." Beginning with the Missouri Valley Conference men's basketball tournament this weekend, the area will host four straight weeks of college sports tournaments.
The region will also host the MVC women's basketball tournament from March 8-11 at The Family Arena, the NCAA Division 1 wrestling championships from March 15-17 and the NCAA Division 1 men's basketball regional on March 23 and 25.
