In that role, Creighton encourages participation in the event and its Athletics Department provides volunteers as requested, assists with ticketing and sales of general admission tickets, with sports information, with athletic training and medical assistance, and with overall administration and logistics of the tournament. The University also makes its practice field available for teams if needed.
