Greenville, S.C (WSPA) The NCAA tournament may have wrapped up in Greenville, but there’s a strong chance the games could return within two years.
Visit Greenville SC estimates the tournament had a $4.6 million economic impact on the area. 42,000 people came to the Bon Secours Wellness Arena for all three sessions making it the only venue to sell out in the opening rounds of the tournament.
A spokesman with Visit Greenville SC says the city made a good impression on NCAA officials.
“They’ve experienced the destination, they had a positive experience and I think that really puts us in a strong position for 2019 through 2022,” said David Montgomery, vice president with Visit Greenville SC.
The NCAA is slated to make a decision on where those games will be played next month.
