The inaugural season of the Kentucky 2A Championship will be next year and as of Wednesday, it finally has a home. In a press release, it announced the Owensboro Daviess County Convention and Visitors Bureau will host all Kentucky 2A Championship events through June 30, 2021. Those events include basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball along with boys and girls soccer.

It will kick off with basketball in January 2019 with the boys’ and girls’ championships being held at the Owensboro Sportscenter, a 5,000 seat area in Owensboro.

In 2020-21, the Kentucky 2A Championship will introduce baseball, softball, volleyball and soccer with those sites being released prior to next year’s basketball tournament.
