What started as a four-team, four-game men’s event in 2018 has expanded to a 12-team, 14-game celebration of men’s and women’s college basketball in 2022. After initially staging one men’s four-team early season event in 2018, the Rocket Mortgage Fort Myers Tip-Off expanded to two men’s divisions, the Beach and the Palms, in 2021, ahead of the inaugural Elevance Health Women’s Fort Myers Tip-Off this November. The Fort Myers Tip-Off will also become just the fifth early season event that consists of both a men’s and women’s component during the non-conference season.
Nationally recognized brands have also aligned themselves with the Fort Myers Tip-Off, in addition to title partners Rocket Mortgage and Elevance Health. Old Trapper Beef Jerky, Applebee’s, State Farm, Libman and O’Reilly Auto Parts are some of the premium brands that will be part of this year’s events.
