UIL ‘states’ may leave Austin
AUSTIN -- The University Interscholastic League (UIL) Legislative Council discussed the possible locations of the football and basketball state tournaments during its June 11 meeting.
The UIL staff asked for the opinion and guidance of the Legislative Council as it related to the basketball state tournament venue. There was not a formal vote, but the council authorized the staff by consensus to move the basketball state tournament out of Austin for 2015, and to enter into negotiations with San Antonio and the Alamodome. A final decision has not yet been made, but once plans are finalized an announcement will be made.
The council also discussed possible football state championship venues. After discussion with the Legislative Council, UIL staff was authorized to move forward with soliciting proposals to give qualified venues the opportunity to compete to host the football championships beginning in 2016 for multiple years.
Qualified facilities will have the opportunity to compete for the championships and decisions will be made based on the proposals submitted.
