t’s official… The 17th Annual “McDonald’s® “City-Suburban Showdown” held February 18 has been moved from the UIC Pavilion to Proviso West High School due to an NCAA bylaw, event promoter Bob Rylko (The Integrity Group) said on Tuesday.
UIC recently informed The Integrity Group that the event could not be held at UIC because of NCAA bylaw 126.96.36.199, which went into effect on April 28, 2011. The bylaw prohibits nonscholastic events from being conducted at facilities regularly used by Division I athletic programs. Despite the participants, the NCAA considers the event non-scholastic because it’s hosted by a private organization.
IMPORTANT NOTE: customers who have already purchased tickets should return them for a refund to the locations where they were bought. Proviso West ticket information is expected to be released soon.
