Southern Conference Basketball Tournament, March 8-11, 2013

Welcome SoCon back to Asheville, March 8-11, 2013!

The 2012 SoCon Tournament brought in 8,000 visitors and resulted in a $4 million economic boost during a historically slow time of year.

Last year’s tournament broke records with over 41,000 combined attendance at the men’s and women’s games. That is 18% higher then any previous tournament. Being that SoCon was established in 1921, that is quite an accomplishment. Thanks Asheville!

This is terrific boost to our economy and great fun. Games are played downtown in the U.S. Cellular Center or at UNCA’s Kimmel Arena.
