2015 SEC Men's Basketball Tournament


March 11-15 | Bridgestone Arena | Nashville, Tennessee

The Southeastern Conference entered into an agreement with the Nashville Sports Council to play its men's or women's basketball tournament at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., each year for 12 consecutive years beginning in 2015.

The "Music City" will serve as host to the men's tournament nine times between 2015 and 2026 and the women's event will be played three times during that period. Under the terms of the new agreement, the men's tournament will be played in Nashville every year from 2015 to 2025 with the exception of 2018 and 2022.

Bridgestone Arena opened in 1996 and has hosted SEC basketball tournaments on nine occasions. The SEC Men's Basketball Tournament was played there in 2001, 2006, 2010 and 2013, while the SEC Women's Tournament was held there in 2002, 2004, 2008, 2011 and 2012. The facility is Nashville's No. 1 venue for large-scale musical productions, as well as one of the nation's most highly acclaimed entertainment and sports venues.

Nashville was also the site of the men's tournament in 1984 and 1991 when it was played at Memorial Gymnasium on the Vanderbilt campus.
