The University of Missouri-Kansas City has accepted an invitation to join the Western Athletic Conference, effective July 1, 2013. UMKC has notified the Summit League of its intention to withdraw from that conference, effective June 30, 2013.

UMKC will be immediately eligible for postseason championship play at both the conference and NCAA level in each of its 16 sports. The WAC holds an automatic NCAA postseason berth in each of the sponsored team sports.

UMKC and WAC officials will discuss the move in detail at a press conference Thursday Feb. 14 on the UMKC Campus. The start time and location for the press conference will be announced at a later date.
