  • Teams whose hometowns are 60+ miles away from the Knoxville Convention Center are required to stay in an official tournament hotel.
  • All team rooms must be booked through the Visit Knoxville Housing System using the provided booking link(s).
  • Rooms booked directly with the hotel or rooms that are cancelled prior to the tournament end will not count toward the team’s commitment.
