The 2018 CIAA Tournament will be held in Charlotte, N.C. from February 27-March 3, 2018. Early-round basketball games will be played at Bojangles’ Coliseum on February 27-28 and continue March 1-3 at Spectrum Center with quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals.
The conference plans to continue building upon its past year’s efforts of including the Charlotte community and beyond into the fabric of the CIAA experience, from basketball games and family-friendly activities to community programs that focus on components such as employment, diversity and inclusion, and entrepreneurship.
“We’re excited about the momentum generated thus far, as we continue to focus on enhancing the student-athlete experience, creating impactful programming, and refreshing our touch points through CIAA Supports community initiatives and official events,” said Jacqie McWilliams, CIAA Commissioner. “It is part of the foundation that our conference stands on — Tradition, Leadership and Community.”
Fans are encouraged to utilize the CIAA’s hotel housing program, which provides tournament attendees with the best available rates for more than 25 hotel brands within and surrounding Uptown Charlotte. The variety of lodging options are within a short walk, Lynx rail stop, or quick car ride to Bojangles’ Coliseum, Spectrum Center, and the Charlotte Convention Center where all of the official CIAA event action will be held.
