Individual session tickets are on sale for the 2020 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference men’s and women’s basketball tournaments that will be held March 10-14 at Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.
The five-day event will feature the league basketball championships, plus its ESports Championship, MAAC Fan Fest, MAAC Band Jam, MAAC ‘n Cheese Fest and Spirit Squad Showcase.
It’s the first time since 2003 the conference championships will be held in New Jersey. The tournaments will be held at Boardwalk Hall through 2022.

The MAAC consists of 11 schools. In addition to New Jersey universities St. Peter’s, Monmouth and Rider, it features Marist, Fairfield, Canisius, Iona, Manhattan, Niagara, Quinnipiac and Siena.
