SRU working hard behind the scenes to host NCAA Fall Festival
2018 Nov 26
Hosting one postseason sporting event is no easy task, with the competitors and the weather not known until a few days before it starts. Imagine the challenge of hosting six championships in one day. So, when SportsPITTSBURGH put in a bid to host the NCAA Division II Fall Championships Festival, officials from the sports division of Allegheny County's tourism promotion agency sought out a capable partner in Slippery Rock University to help win the bid and make the festival a success.
Although all the sporting events will take place 50 miles south of campus in Pittsburgh, SRU is serving as the co-host institution for the festival, which will include six championships, Nov. 29 to Dec. 1.
