Concordia Invitational Tournament

2023 Concordia Invitational Tournament



It's our turn. Concordia University, Nebraska will host the 70th annual Concordia Invitational Tournament (CIT) Jan. 27-28, 2023. The tournament features, in addition to the Bulldogs, the Concordias of Ann Arbor, Mequon and Chicago competing in men's and women's basketball and cheer and dance. CIT is one of the longest running tournaments in the country, and it is a highlight of the athletic year among the participating Concordias. The event was canceled in 2021 and 2022 due to concerns brought about by COVID-19.

All games for the 70th annual Concordia Invitational Tournament will be played at Friedrich Arena on the Concordia University, Nebraska campus. Join Concordia University, Nebraska alumni and friends in Seward for a weekend of fun and fellowship.
