Summer 2018 NIT Tournament

News is flying about here in the US of A about a possible alternate tournament next summer for the teams that failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. They are dubbing it the NIT (National Invitational Tournament), which is a basketball tournament in the USA for college teams that failed to make it to the NCAA tournament.

Here are some of the nations that failed to make it to the World Cup:
Ivory Coast
Czech Republic

Not a bad lineup, actually.

Fox News paid US$200 million for the World Cup English-language broadcast rights in the USA, but is now looking at major losses since the US will not be in the tourney. In fact, I suspect most Americans will skip watching the World Cup especially if the USA were to get this NIT on our soil.

Interesting, eh?
