JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 25, 2016) – Looking for a place to join fellow ETSU fans and watch the Buccaneers play in the Vegas 16 Tournament next week? Well, we have the spot for you.

The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and 50fifty Sports Tavern in Johnson City, located at 2101 North Roan Street just across from the Mall at Johnson City, have teamed up to provide Bucs’ fans with a perfect place to watch together as ETSU head coach Steve Forbes and his team battle for a title in the inaugural Vegas 16 Tournament March 28-30 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nev.

ETSU opens play at the Vegas 16 on March 28 at 11:30 p.m., taking on Conference USA member Louisiana Tech in the tournament quarterfinals. That night, 50fifty will offer a 10 percent discount on food and beverage orders for ETSU fans, and will dedicate dozens of big screen televisions to display the CBS Sports Network broadcast of the Bucs’ game.

If the Bucs continue winning in the tournament, they would play again at 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday night in the semifinals, and then again at 10 p.m. on Wednesday night in the tournament finals. As long as the Bucs are playing, 50fifty will host watch parties each night.
