The City of Salem is getting set to host the 41st annual Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl this month, and while
Game Manager Carey Harveycutter is focused on making the game's 21st stop in Salem a special
moment, he's also pleased to announce that the NCAA has given Salem 13 more reasons to tout itself
as "Virginia's Championship City."

The NCAA awarded Salem the following National Championships this afternoon:
Men's D-III Football 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017
Men's D-III Basketball 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018
Women's D-III Softball 2015, 2016
Women's D-II Softball 2017, 2018
Women's D-II Lacrosse 2015

"We're just pleased that the NCAA continues to trust the city and the conferences we work with to
host these prestigious events," says Carey Harveycutter, Salem's Director of Tourism and Game
Manager for NCAA events.

In 1993, Salem began hosting NCAA Championships when it secured the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl.
Since then the city has hosted 20 straight football championships and entertained athletes and coaches
from all over the country for more than 70 NCAA National Championship events.

The city will once again partner with the Old Dominion Athletic Conference for the D-III championships
and with the Mountain East Conference for the D-II events.

"It never gets old because you always have new participants who are coming to Salem," says
Harveycutter. "The new players and new coaches who come to the city each year looking to win a
national championship keep it exciting."

This year's 41st annual Stagg Bowl, the Division III National football championship game, will take place
on Friday night, December 20, at 7 p.m. at Salem Stadium. Tickets are available now through and the Salem Civic Center box office
