Amasa, Michigan, March 12, 2012—When the National Collegiate Athletic Association® basketball championships are played in the Mercedes Benz Superdome on March 31 and April 2, millions across the world will be watching the athletes play on courts that started taking shape last September in a tiny town on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
The sleek hardwood courts on which the championships will be played kickoff their traditional journey to the Final Four® on Saturday, March 17 with a fan rally at the 100 block of Witherspoon in Louisville.
The court’s journey to New Orleans is called The Connor Sport Court/UPS Final Four Floor Tour, thanks to a partnership between Connor Sport Court and UPS. This is the first year in the five year history of the court tour that Connor Sport Court has partnered with another company.
A documentary team from CBS Television is filming the tour, from construction of the court in Amasa to Final Four play in New Orleans.
The championship court, which will be transported by UPS Freight, will begin its road trip on March 16 at UPS’s hub in Columbus, Ohio. From there it will travel on to Louisville, one of the host sites for the second and third rounds of the men’s tournament.
On March 19, the court will make a stop at the UPS Freight facility in Atlanta followed by Auburn University in Auburn, Ala., on March 20; the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg on March 21, and LSU in Baton Rouge on March 22 before arriving at its final destination in New Orleans on March 23. The events at the UPS facilities in Columbus and Atlanta will be exclusively for UPS employees, but all other court destinations will be open to the public.
UPS and Connor Sport Court have planned a wide range of entertaining events and activities at each stop, including photo opportunities with a replica of center court, a Final Four trivia game with collectible prizes and a shooting contest on a “backyard” basketball court provided by Sport Court®....
