Chicago's elite basketball culture will add another feather to its cap this summer as the Windy City plays host to TBT 2019 Championship Week. 

For the first time in its six-year history, TBT is admitting eight “host” teams before opening its application period, creating memorable, college-like atmospheres for home and visiting teams alike for Rounds 1-3.The eight Regional Champions will then travel to Chicago's Wintrust Arena (home to the WNBA's Chicago Sky, DePaul men's basketball and DePaul women's basketball) looking for just three wins to be crowned TBT 2019 Champions, hoist "The Trophy" and take home the $2 million winner-take-all cash prize.

TBT is no stranger to the magic of Chi-Town, having brought the Midwest Regionals there (in 2015 and 2016), as well as the Super 17 and Quarterfinals (in 2015) - which produced some of TBT's biggest moments, including Eric Atkins' buzzer-beating layup to help then reigning champion, Notre Dame Fighting Alumni, defeat Midwest Dream Squad. 

Championship Week in Chicago Schedule:

·Quarterfinals Day 1 – Thursday, August 1 | 7:00pm ET & 9:00pm ET 

·Quarterfinals Day 2 – Friday, August 2 | 7:00pm ED & 9:00pm ET

TBT 2019 will feature a 64-team bracket of professional basketball players, with college alumni teams, international basketball stars, ex-NBA players, future NBA players and others competing in a single-elimination 5-on-5 tournament. Anyone can apply to enter a team – the application period opens on March 1, and the full TBT bracket will be announced June 11. Fans win 10 percent, or $200,000, of the $2 million prize. Games will air live on ESPN networks beginning Friday, July 19. Puma once again will serve as an Official Partner in 2019.

Last year, more than 60 players with NBA experience played in TBT, including multiple former lottery picks, NBA Champions, and All-Stars. Sixteen TBT 2017 players signed deals with NBA teams in 2017-18. Overseas Elite, a dynasty team of American stars playing in top leagues around the world, won for the fourth consecutive year in 2018, running their record to 25-0 and taking home an astounding $7 million in the process. They will be back to defend their title, although their Region has yet to be determined.
