ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The convention and visitors bureau is expecting March Madness to have a big pay off at the bank on Thursday.
The MACC tournament will kick off at the Times Union Center. Later this month it will host the women’s regional college basketball championship.
The SEFCU Arena will host the federation tournament of champions, and depending on UAlbany’s success, SEFCU could also host the “America East” tournament championship.
In all, officials say the basketball action this month could bring in 3.5 million dollars in tourism money back to the county.
