LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The NCAA volleyball championships began on Thursday evening at the KFC Yum! Center.
Penn State, The University of Texas, Oregon and Michigan are all in the final four.
More than 15,000 athletes, coaches and fans are expected to attend the event as it coincides with a national volleyball coaches association convention.
The group is setting Louisville up for a $3.5 million economic boost.
"It's awesome," says University of Wyoming volleyball coach Vilis Ozols. "Obviously we attend the session and the matches, the final four matches. Restaurants...it's networking, it's meeting up with colleagues and Louisville has just been a great place to do all that."
The visitors' dollars are needed in downtown shops. A special tax on businesses near the Yum! Center is underperforming.
The Arena Authority uses this money to help pay off the $349 million in construction on the venue.
