Collegiate Sports Championships are Ramping up in Philadelphia

Collegiate sports fans in Philadelphia have something to look forward to in the coming years. The city will start to host several major events in the coming months and years. These exciting events will range from basketball, hockey, wrestling and lacrosse.

NCAA officials came to City Hall to tout a handful of events in the region over the next three years — in men’s and women’s basketball and other sports. Mayor Michael Nutter thanked and gave a miniature “Rocky” statue to Greg Shaheen, the NCAA’s interim vice president. “We are very, very excited to have you and the NCAA in Philadelphia for a long, long period of time,” the mayor said.

Shaheen spelled out six championship events between this year and 2014 in Philadelphia — a region that he said is a hotbed for collegiate sports. “We have a remarkable fan base, a remarkable college following, a remarkable set of facilities in which we are able to compete,” Shaheen said. The events include some “March Madness,” with women’s basketball regional action this year, and in 2013 with men’s basketball second- and third-round action.

Other championships planned include wrestling this year, lacrosse in 2012 and 2013, and the NCAA ice hockey championships — called the “Frozen Four” — in 2014. This will be a great opportunity for Philadelphia. Estimated income to the city for all of this is put at $75 million.

Whether you are just a basketball fan or sports fanatic, this announcement is sure to excite many of us. If you are coming to one of these events from out of town, there are plenty of hotels, restaurants and entertainment spots nearby any of these sports events. When visiting for the first time you may not know exactly where to go. This is when our experience and chauffeurs come into play.

My company had an international artist picked up at JFK and dropped off in Philadelphia, and the artist had the best time. The driver kept in touch with me throughout the day, so we could plan for arrival, and our artist had the most wonderful experience with the driver. That’s really astounding considering our artist had just gotten off a red-eye from across the world. Thank you so very much!
