NIKE Tournament of Champions

July 10-12, 2019
McCormick Place

Widely considered the most venerated basketball event across the globe, the 2019 tournament will host 752 teams and more than 10,000 US and Canadian athletes and coaches. The tournament is the largest single venue basketball event in the world and the largest in the history of men's or women's basketball.

The NIKE Nationals — the championship event of the Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) — returns in 2019, bringing all 32 NIKE sponsored teams to Chicago to play alongside the 720 teams in the Tournament of Champions. That combined power is expected to attract more college basketball coaches than any event in history.

This is just one of the many high-profile sporting events to which Chicago plays host in 2019. Check out what the Chicago Sports Commission has in store.
