MOLINE, Ill. – The Missouri Valley Conference announced Thursday it has entered an agreement with the Quad Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau to bring the MVC Women’s Basketball Tournament to the iWireless Center through at least 2018. The MVC Presidents Council, following a recommendation of the league’s Joint Committee, voted to place the tournament in the Quad Cities after considering bids from multiple sites.
The agreement is for three years (March 10-13, 2016; March 9-12, 2017; and March 8-11, 2018), with the league holding a two-year option for 2019 and 2020.
“The Missouri Valley Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament is one of the league’s premier championships and it’s fitting that we are partnering with the Quad Cities, a premier destination, and conducting the event at the iWireless Center, a first class facility,” said Patty Viverito, Senior Associate Commissioner of the Missouri Valley Conference. “Our teams and fans are going to love all that the Quad Cities area has to offer.”
