“We are genuinely excited about the MAAC Conference bringing their post season tournament to Atlantic City and Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall,” said Jim Wynkoop, Spectra Venue Management General Manager. “This is an opportunity for the community to be a part of meaningful college basketball games in March where the Champions of both the Men’s and Women’s tournament will advance to the NCAA National Championship Tournament.”

Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall will host the MAAC Basketball Championships for the first time in history. The MAAC Basketball Championships will return to the state of New Jersey for the first time since 2003, when it was played at Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton. A total of nine MAAC Men’s Basketball Championships and five Women’s Basketball Championships have been held in New Jersey, including the inaugural event in 1982 at what was the Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford. 

“We are elated to serve as the new home for the MAAC tournament starting in 2020. We believe that Atlantic City and the MAAC tournament will flourish together with this new partnership,” stated Daniel Gallagher, Sports Account Director for the Atlantic City Sports Commission.

"We're excited that Rider's alumni, students and fans will have easier access to see our men's and women's basketball teams compete for NCAA Tournament berths."

"We are very much looking forward to co-hosting the MAAC Men's and Women's Basketball Championships in Atlantic City. Not only does Atlantic City offer the conference neutrality, it provides a multitude of entertainment, shopping, and dining options for fans to take advantage of while enjoying championship basketball," noted Harnum.

“We are very excited that the 2020 MAAC Basketball Championships will be held in Atlantic City,” said Monmouth University Vice President and Director of Athletics Dr. Marilyn McNeil. “I know that the local organizing committee, the MAAC and the host institutions are putting together an excellent week of events and Division I Basketball. Our fans are definitely going to want to take advantage of these early ticket opportunities.”
