Champions Classic TicketsThe Champions Classic is an annual college basketball event that is one of the most unique tournament formats in all of basketball. Each year, the classic features the same four college basketball programs: Duke, Kentucky, Michigan State and Kansas. These four schools are regularly ranked in the top 10 of college basketball teams and make the NCAA Final Four Tournament almost every year. The tournament is unique because it takes place on a three-year cycle. Each team plays one other team a year in a round-robin format. After three years, each team has played each other team once, so a winner is crowned based on who has the most victories. The event is one of the most high-profile preseason college basketball events each season by design. In fact, each team has been ranked every year that the event was held except for 2011, the inaugural year. Both games of the Champions Classic are held at a neutral site that changes each season.

Where will the Champions Classic be played in 2020?The event rotates each year. In 2020, the Classic will be played in Chicago, Ill., at the United Center.

The seating capacity for basketball games is 20,917 people. The event is scheduled for three years out. In 2021, the Champions Classic will be played in New York at Madison Square Garden. The 2022 event is scheduled for Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind.
Which teams will play each other in 2020?The tournament is a round-robin format over three years, so each team plays one game during the classic annually. The two games in the 2020 tournament will see Duke versus Michigan State and Kansas versus Kentucky, and it will be the first year of a new three-year cycle.
Have any important players played in the Champions Classic?Because of the nature of the Champions Classic, a number of high-profile college basketball players appear in the event each year.

The New Orleans Pelicans took the Duke freshman first in the 2019 NBA draft after his breakout season for the Blue Devils.

In the second game, the Kentucky Wildcats surprised the experts by beating Michigan State, which was ranked No. 1 in the nation at the time, by a score of 69-62. It should also be noted that 2019 was the first year that each team was ranked in the top 4 of the NCAA nationally.
Who has the best head-to-head record in the Champions Classic so far?So far there is only one matchup in which one team is undefeated against the other.
