CAA Women’s Basketball Championship returning to Elon in 2021

Schar Center will host the 2021 CAA Women's Basketball Championship after the 2020 event at Elon was canceled to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Following the sudden cancellation of the 2020 Colonial Athletic Association Women’s Basketball Championship, presented by Sonabank, the CAA has announced the event will return to Elon and Schar Center in March 2021.

The remainder of the 2020 Championship, scheduled for March 11-14, was cancelled after one day of tournament play to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). The event marked the first conference championship hosted at Elon’s state-of-the-art, 5,100 seat arena.

Each of the conference’s 10 athletics directors voted in favor of the decision in a show of support for Elon.

The CAA’s decision will delay the current hosting schedule by a year. After Elon hosts in 2021, the Championship will be played at James Madison in 2022, Towson in 2023, Drexel in 2024 and at the College of William & Mary in 2025.

More information about the 2021 CAA Women’s Basketball Championship at Schar Center will be made available at a later date.
