SEC Tournament to stay in Nashville through 2035

I hope you’re a fan of Nashville, because Kentucky fans are about to see a whole lot more of it over the next two decades.

The Tennessean reports a deal has been finalized for the SEC Tournament to be played at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena through 2035. The original contract, which has been extended ten years, had the tournament in the city through 2025.

The SEC men’s tournament will be now be held in Nashville every year except one, with the exception being in 2022 when the event will be played in Tampa, Fla. In that year, the women’s team will take its place at Bridgestone Area.

An official announcement is expected to be made tomorrow.

Playing in Nashville: It just means more.

    It is only 31 miles from the Commonwealth’s border, it’s west Kentucky’s largest city, and the SEC could never bring itself to ever hold it in the Commonwealth if the Yum Center was available between now and the end of the earth. Nashville is closest to being in Ky. without being in Ky. It’s the least the SEC could do.
