With luxury resorts Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa and Westin Cape Coral Resort and Spa serving as host hotels, fans will have the opportunity to stay where the teams stay and experience resort life to the fullest. The Bradley and K-State traveling parties will stay at the Westin Cape Coral, and the Northwestern and Pitt travel parties will stay at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott. Additionally, the Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina, a Condé Nast Traveler 2018 Reader’s Choice winner, is located directly on Fort Myers Beach, offering the perfect beachside complement for fans looking for the complete vacation experience. Three-, Four- and Five-night itineraries are available at each of the event’s three host hotels.
Scheduled for November 25 & 27 at Suncoast Credit Union Arena, the second-annual Rocket Mortgage Fort Myers Tip-Off has quickly become a staple of the Southwest Florida sports calendar. After an exciting inaugural event that saw Boston College defeat 2018 Final Four participant Loyola-Chicago for the tournament championship last November, the event returns in 2019 with nationally recognized programs ready to compete for another early-season championship.
The teams of the 2019 Rocket Mortgage Fort Myers Tip-Off, which boast a combined 65 NCAA Tournament appearances and seven Final Four berths, are led by coaches with winning pedigrees. K-State’s Bruce Weber (Illinois), Northwestern’s Chris Collins (Duke) and Pitt’s Jeff Capel (Duke) have all helped guide teams to National Championship games during their coaching careers, and Bradley’s Brian Wardle, who with 150 career victories is second among Division I coaches younger than 40 in career wins. Earlier this season, Bradley (Cancun Challenge), K-State (Paradise Jam) and Pitt (Barclays Classic) each won their respective preseason tournaments.
At this time, tickets for the 2019 Rocket Mortgage Fort Myers Tip-Off are only available through travel packages. Ticket-only packages, based on availability, will become available in September.
