FOR THE REGION AND STATE
MARKS FIRST TIME REGION HOSTS TWO CHAMPIONSHIPS SIMULTANEOUSLY
ST. LOUIS – March 16, 2017 – For St. Louis, the madness of March is manifested in something it has never done before: host two NCAA championships at the same time. The region accomplishes that unique feat this weekend as it produces the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships and the NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Frozen Four. The Wrestling Championships take place today through Saturday at Scottrade Center and the Women’s Frozen Four runs Friday and Sunday at the Family Arena in St. Charles.
“This is a special weekend for sports in St. Louis and for our entire area,” said St. Louis Sports Commission President Frank Viverito. “I hope our region appreciates how meaningful it is to host these championships – not just because of their economic value, but also because of the excitement they bring to our community and the opportunity they present for St. Louisans to see student-athletes compete at the highest level.
“It’s also important to acknowledge the NCAA for its faith in St. Louis to deliver a fabulous experience for two championships going on simultaneously. We’re grateful for the support from our partners and co-hosts – the University of Missouri and Scottrade Center for Wrestling, and Lindenwood University and the Family Arena for the Frozen Four. Together, we look forward to taking on the challenge.
