PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Ivy League will continue a pre-determined campus rotation for the Men's and Women's Basketball Tournaments through 2025, with Harvard hosting in 2020 at Lavietes Pavilion.

  • 2020 edition will take place on March 14 and 15 at Harvard in Cambridge, Mass.
  • Campus rotation will continue to follow a geographic rotation, visiting each campus through 2025
  • Limited seating is still available for the 2019 Tournaments on March 16 & 17 at Yale. Please visit IvyMadness.com for ticket information.

The tournaments will continue to feature the top four men's and women's teams competing for the right to represent the Ivy League in the NCAA Basketball Championships. As in previous years, the winners of the regular season will be recognized as Ivy League champions.

"Each Ivy League campus presents its own aura and distinctive traits," Ivy League Executive Director Robin Harris said. "With this rotation, we look forward to sharing the atmosphere and energy of our basketball tournaments with each of our campus communities and giving all of our devoted fanbases an opportunity to experience Ivy Madness in their own venue."

The announced schedule is designed to continue through the remainder of the League's geographic footprint in a southern, central and northern pattern.

Limited tickets to this year's Ivy League Men's and Women's Basketball Tournaments are available by visiting IvyMadness.com. Courtside seats for all men's sessions are sold out and several sessions only have limited seating remaining.

Ivy League basketball, which boasts six NCAA Tournament wins over the past nine years, is currently enjoying one of its most successful seasons in recent history. Both men's and women's basketball are currently ranked among the top 11 conferences – out of 32 – in NCAA Division I. The men lead the country in close game percentage with nearly half of all League games decided in overtime or by four points or less in regulation. The women are continuing their trend as one of college basketball's top-ranked conferences in the country, once again in the top-11 for the fifth-straight year.

Ticket information for the 2020 tournaments will be released at a future date. All six games will be broadcast across the ESPN networks.
