It is with great pleasure to announce that for the 3rd straight year, the 2020 NCBBA Men’s National Championship will be held in South Bend, Indiana on the campus of Indiana University-South Bend (IU-South Bend).  The previous two National Championship Tournaments were the best that the NCBBA has ever held.  A huge reason for that success was due to the fantastic hospitality and venue that IU-South Bend offered us as well as the commitment and excitement Visit South Bend Mishawaka provided.

The official Press Release announcing the decision can be read HERE.  Please be sure to follow the NCBBA Men’s Social Media Accounts as well as the NCBBA Men’s National Championship website as more information and details will be released on those platforms leading up to the 2020 event.
