Nike’s flagship girls basketball events – the Tournament of Champions and Nike Nationals – return to Chicago on July 19, 20, 21 and 22, 2024.

After a banner year in 2023 which saw record breaking participation and attendance and an historic partnership with the NBA – the Tournament of Champions will celebrate its 26th Anniversary by producing an event which promises to be unlike any that summer basketball has ever seen.

Unlike other events which are forced to combine leagues, shoe companies, and sponsors, Chicago showcases just one brand and the two best events in the world. There is little doubt that Nike’s iconic Tournament of Champions (est. 1999) is the most prestigious and competitive club basketball event in existence; combined with Nike Nationals (est. 2005) – which is the culmination of the Portland, Oregon based apparel company’s Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) – it has transformed Chicago into a mecca for girls’ basketball and the #1 stop for the nation’s most elite youth teams and the college coaches following them.

The combined tournaments – which will play together for the sixth time – have generated as much buzz for their off-court excitement as the on court heroics. In 2024 the events will occupy more than 1.5 million square feet inside the largest convention center in the Western Hemisphere, and together they will host elite teams from all 50 States and every Canadian province, including all 32 Nike EYBL programs and the majority of the best club basketball teams in the nation.

Chicago itself is one of the top tourist destinations in the world and has just been voted the Best Big City in the U.S. for an unprecedented seven years in a row by readers of Condé Nast Traveler. In the 35-year history of the prestigious award, no other city has won more than three times. Many of the city’s best hotels have partnered with the event to provide accommodations, and, in a rare move, at lower prices than in 2023.
