HOUSTON – The Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC), the first HBCU Conference to host two championships in professional venues in the same city, released their 2013 football and basketball championship logos today.
The release of the logos comes after the conference made the announcement that championships for both sports will be moving to Houston, Texas.
The football championship game will be held at Reliant Stadium, 2013-15, while the basketball tournament will be hosted at the Toyota Center 2014-16. The 2013 Toyota SWAC Football Championship is scheduled for Saturday, December 7, with the basketball tournament set for March 11-15, 2014.
“We are excited to reveal the new SWAC Football and Basketball Championship logos. As the SWAC continues to honor our heritage, we look forward to advancing and growing the conference,” said SWAC Commissioner Duer Sharp. “These efforts have started by moving the championships to Houston and providing a visual that reflects our move and advancements.”
The SWAC Football Championship will also include the Battle of the Bands competition with all of the conference’s member institutions. The contest will begin immediately following the football championship game at Reliant Stadium and admission is included with purchase of a game ticket.
