The Big Ten Conference has announced an extension for TD Ameritrade Park to serve as host venue for the conference baseball tournament from 2019 through 2022. The home of the College World Series will host this year’s Big Ten Tournament May 25 through the 29 after setting record attendance numbers in 2014. Omaha will also host the tournament in 2018.
“We are pleased to announce that TD Ameritrade Park will be the home of the Big Ten Baseball Tournament in 2016 and from 2018 through 2022,” said Big Ten Commissioner James E. Delany. “It’s been a terrific venue for us with incredible fan participation and we’re excited to be back.”
The Big Ten Tournament was held in Omaha for the first time in 2014 and established multiple attendance records. The attendance of 19,965 for the championship game ranked as the largest single-game conference tournament attendance in NCAA history. The five-day total tournament attendance of 62,020 marked the largest in the history of the event.
