FORT COLLINS, Colo. – In an effort to ensure the safety of the athletes, coaches, staff members and fans, Triple Crown Sports has announced it will move the 2020 Cancun Challenge to Eastern Florida State College in Melbourne, Florida.
While the Lady Vols’ 2020-21 schedule hasn’t been released, Kellie Harper‘s squad is among the teams slated to participate in the tournament.
EFSC sits in the heart of Florida’s Space Coast. Located just south of Cape Canaveral, Melbourne is moments away from the Kennedy Space Center and the city’s cultural hub, providing the perfect backdrop for the 2020 edition of the popular Thanksgiving week event.
Games will be played at the Titan Field House, which is home to Eastern Florida’s men’s and women’s basketball programs. The arena seats approximately 1,500 fans, maintaining the classic intimate setting of the Cancun Challenge.
Final details involving hotels, fan packages, tournament field and schedules will be released at a later date. Fans are asked to refrain from booking lodging until team hotel and other amenities are announced.
