General Patriot League Championship Information
All Patriot League Championships shall be conducted under the direct supervision of that championship's Tournament Director and a Patriot League designee. The Tournament Manager and the Patriot League Representative shall be the final authority regarding all championship matters on-site as some adjustments should be expected in the best interest of the championship. All League championships are subject to such requirements, standards, and conditions as may be prescribed by the League's constitution and bylaws, which can be found in the Patriot League Policy and Procedures Manual.
The Tournament Manager shall be designated by the Director of Athletics at the host institution.
Institution These sites are determined on a rotating basis subject to certain facility standards and the agreement of the host institution. If a member chooses not to host a pre-sited League championship, the championship moves to the next institution in the rotation. This determination must be made one year in advance. The pre-sited rotation includes all members that have a facility acceptable to a majority of the sport's head coaches.
Highest Seed Host Institution
If the championship is designated to be hosted by the highest regular-season seed, and if the highest seed cannot or chooses not to host the championship, the option to host moves in descending order to the second highest regular-season seed, etc.

The host institution must arrange for a time and place to conduct the pre-tournament meeting between the coaches, sports information personnel, trainers, facilities personnel, Tournament Manager, League representative and other institutional staff members involved in the hosting of the championship. The pre-tournament meeting will be used to discuss tournament logistics such as the schedule of events, practice times, presentation of awards, etc.
