Sioux Falls Hoping To Host NCAA Postseason Events

Sioux Falls Hoping To Host NCAA Postseason Events

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Sioux Falls officials are hoping to convince the NCAA to bring some of its postseason events to South Dakota’s largest city.

Three representatives from the governing body of major college athletics are scheduled this week to tour the city’s athletic venues and area colleges.

The city is hoping to land NCAA events like a Division I women’s basketball playoff, Division One women’s volleyball regional, Division II men’s and women’s basketball Elite Eight tournament, and others.

Sioux Falls Sports Authority Executive Director Wes Hall says that while it’s unlikely the city will be chosen when bids are announced in December, he believes Sioux Falls will give the NCAA something to think about.

The sports authority was founded in 2006 and has been funded largely by Sanford Health.
