The Charlotte Sports Foundation and ESPN Events today announced the full schedule of games for the inaugural Jumpman Invitational presented by Novant Health. Taking place December 20-21, 2022 in Charlotte, N.C., this event will feature both the men’s and women’s teams from the original four schools to sign partnership deals with Jordan Brand in both basketball and football: Florida, Michigan, North Carolina and Oklahoma.
All games will take place at Spectrum Center in uptown Charlotte in partnership with Hornets Sports & Entertainment and will be shown on ESPN networks.
“With six of the eight teams competing in last year’s NCAA tournaments and their programs’ collective storied history we believe the Jumpman Invitational presented by Novant Health will be a premier basketball event not just this year, but in years to come,” said Danny Morrison, executive director of CSF. “We look forward to welcoming the players, coaches and fans to Charlotte for what will be a first-class experience.”
“We look forward to working with the Charlotte Sports Foundation and our sponsors in welcoming these four men’s and women’s programs to Charlotte. Our inaugural year will lay a solid foundation in which we can grow the event and give back to the community,” said Clint Overby, vice president, ESPN Events.
Tickets for the event will be available to the public in late September. For more information on the events and to sign up for notifications visit www.jumpmaninvitational.com.
