SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- Summit League officials in conjunction with their partners at the Sioux Falls Sports Authority announced Wednesday that they will continue to make available a popular two-year ticket buying option for their basketball fans. The next combination available will be for the 2020 and 2021 Men's and Women's Basketball Championships at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center.

This latest option will be available for purchase beginning at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at the KELOLAND Box Office in Sioux Falls, www.ticketmaster.com and charging by phone at 800-745-3000. The opportunity to purchase will remain open until Monday, Dec. 10 at 5 p.m.

"We've experienced overwhelming success with this option in the past, so it was an easy decision to make this available to our fans once again," The Summit League Commissioner Tom Douple said. "This is just another simple way for our fans to secure their tickets for multiple years to an event that continues to grow in popularity."

By purchasing a two-year ticket option, fans are guaranteed the same seat for all sessions of the 2020 and 2021 Summit League Men's and Women's Basketball Championships. Prices range from $292-$424 per ticket plus applicable fees for the two years.

For those who purchased the two-year ticket plan for the 2018 and 2019 championships, an email will be sent by Wednesday, Sept. 5 and a direct-mail piece will follow soon after detailing the renewal process for the 2020 and 2021 events. Current plan holders will be able to renew the same amount or decrease their amount of tickets, but they will not be able to increase that figure.

The renewal process will be handled through Ticketmaster, allowing for more efficiency between the ticket holder and our office.
