Staging a major sporting event such as an NCAA championship requires diligence in planning and precision in execution, beginning with the all-important bid process. The team at JMI Sports has extensive experience bidding for, being awarded, and then executing conference and NCAA championships. JMI Sports’ Jeff Schemmel directed the Twin Cities Organizing Committee for the 2001 Final Four in Minneapolis and many conference and NCAA Championships at the University of Minnesota, and chaired the NCAA Division I Championship Cabinet. In addition, JMI Sports’ network of advisors offers clients an even greater breadth of experience in this regard. Our team can provide services in all areas of a major sporting event, including bid preparation, student-athlete coordination, fan experience, volunteer organization, housing and transportation, hospitality, media, on-site production, and ancillary events surrounding the championships.
