Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership GRCC
Galveston County
League City to Host 20th Annual Texas Classic Basketball Tournament
Press Release
Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Three-day tournament expected to generate $500,000 in local economic impact

The League City Convention & Visitors Bureau League City (LCCVB), in partnership with the Clear Creek Independent School District (CCISD), is happy to announce we will be hosting the 20th Annual Texas Classic Basketball tournament April 26-28, 2019. The NCAA sanctioned tournament will feature elite teams from Texas and the southwest United States.  

The tournament, which is operated by Nelson Brand Sports, is a part of a focused LCCVB effort to develop “sports tourism” as a viable market to fuel economic development and increase the number of visitors to League City. 

The three-day showcase tournament will bring more than 125 teams, tournament officials, parents, and college scouts into League City and the Bay Area Houston region, and is expected to generate more than $500,000 in local economic impact through spending on hotels, restaurants, entertainment, and personal purchases. 

Tournament sites will be grouped around CCISD’s Clear Creek High School and Clear Falls High School campuses, utilizing both high school and junior high gymnasiums to create a visitor friendly experience by reducing travel between tournament venues. 

“We are thankful for the partnership with CCISD and the support of its administrators and coaches in bringing this basketball tournament to our community,” said LCCVB Administrator Bryan Roller. “We also hope the League City community will attend the games and catch a glimpse of future NCAA and NBA stars. 

Former tournament participants include NBA players Gerald Green of the Houston Rockets and NCAA players Fabian White of the University of Houston and Max Evans of Vanderbilt. 

The LCCVB, in partnership with the League City Regional Chamber of Commerce, is also seeking local residents and business owners who are interested in volunteering to assist visitors by manning information booths at the tournament sites.
