WIAA basketball campaign in Green Bay

Posted:

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- Tickets go on sale Saturday for the WIAA girls basketball tournament in March.

This will be the first time it's played at the Resch Center in Green Bay, instead of in Madison.

Community leaders have launched a campaign to pull in the crowds and make spectators feel welcome.

They've partnered with Green Bay Metro to offer extended transportation options.

Local businesses are also offering deals.

The president of the Green Bay Area Convection and Visitors Bureau, Brad Toll, says, "We do have a coupon book that will be made available to all fans coming in, providing them with special opportunities, discounts in our community, attractions, dining, shopping."

They also plan to launch new websites and use social media to bring in younger crowds.
