Summit League Tickets Selling Out



Bookmark and Share

If you want tickets to the Summit League Basketball Tournament, you’ll want to place your order pretty fast. According to organizers, there aren’t many tickets left, and some sessions have already sold out.

Calling all basketball fans, starting Saturday at noon, the fifth annual Summit League Basketball Tournament will be back in Sioux Falls. And executive director of Sioux Falls Sports Authority Wes Hall said the crowds will be bigger than ever.
 
“The numbers were 40, 290 tickets or there about, so we were well above 40,000 tickets sold last year. We should eclipse that here this weekend,” said Hall.

And with still five days until tip off, you can’t get seats to a few games.

“We are officially sold out of the men's session on Saturday,” said Hall.

Hall said the arena seats a little over 6,000 fans. But with many games nearly sold out, pickings are pretty slim, and that’s not the only thing.
     
 “With the construction on the events center, we lost about 300 parking spots,” said Hall.

So Hall said coordinators had to do a little extra planning to make sure fans can get to the game. A space they will have to share with the Sioux Empire Home Show.

“We've worked with the home show quite a bit, and I know there were questions in regards to getting in and getting out, but that wont be an issue,” said Hall.
   
 But the thousands of people that will be here either browsing home goods, or rooting for their favorite team, will in one way or another impact the entire city of Sioux Falls.

 “Between the Home Show and The Summit League Tournament, there will be millions of economic benefit to the community,” said Teri Schmidt, Sioux Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Millions of dollars are expected to be spent. From hotels, to restaurants, to stores, Schmidt said Sioux Falls will be busy. But the city is ready.

“Our town really has a great city host mentality,” said Schmidt.

Schmidt said the bureau is hanging over 400 signs across town welcoming guests.
    
“Its time for us to roll out the red carpet,” Schmidt said.

And Hall said Sioux Falls should already be preparing for when the Summit League is held at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center.

 “We will start setting new records once we get into the events center in 2015,” Hall said.

Tip off for the first game is Saturday at Noon. The South Dakota State University women take on Oakland.
