NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Southeastern Conference has decided to make Nashville the primary home of the league's men's basketball tournament.

A source has confirmed to Channel 4 that Nashville will host 12 straight SEC basketball tournaments at Bridgestone Arena, including nine men's and three women's tournaments beginning in 2015.

The move comes after Nashville had already been awarded the 2015, 2016 and 2019 men's tournaments.

SEC Commissioner Mike Slive along with Nashville Mayor Karl Dean and other city leaders are expected to formally make the announcement on Tuesday morning.
