3 years ago
Connor Sport Court International, the official floor of the NCAA® Final Four®, will transport the game floor from their manufacturing plant in Amasa, Michigan to one of their finishing facilities, Praters, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to the Georgia Dome in Atlanta for the Final Four®. Praters is the official finishing partner of the Final Four®. During the floor’s journey, Connor Sport Court International makes tour stops at different university campuses for the Final Four® Floor Tour.
The public is invited to attend the Georgia State University event that is suitable for all ages. The event will be held on Gilmer Street near Hurt Park. Attendees can participate in basketball shoot offs, photo ops with a replica of center court, receive free swag and more. The event will also celebrate Georgia State University’s Centennial year. Participants at the event will have the opportunity to sign the tour truck carrying the official Final Four® floor. The public is also invited to watch the Final Four® Floor Tour truck escorted by Georgia Dome Security vehicles into the Georgia Dome.
This year marks the eighth year that Connor Sport Court International has produced the floor for the NCAA® Final Four® tournament and the fifth Final Four® Floor Tour. Connor Sport Court International is proud to celebrate 75 years of March Madness alongside the NCAA®. “We look forward to bringing the tour to Atlanta this year,” said Ron Cerny, President and CEO of Connor Sport Court International.”Our company enjoys putting on this tour because we love interacting with college basketball fans all over the country.” Connor Sport Court International will also supply the court for the 2013 Women’s Final Four® on April 7-9, 2013.
Connor Sport Court International builds the portable floor for installation at the Final Four® venues each year. The NCAA Final Four® courts for both men and women are manufactured from the best premium hard maple. A few weeks prior to the Final Four® tournament, the floor is
constructed, inspected and then disassembled at the Amasa plant and sent to one of the company’s finishing facilities in Chattanooga, TN before the floor is loaded up for the tour and delivered to the Georgia Dome.
