Confetti covers the Final Four logo after the North Carolina Tar Heels defeated the Gonzaga Bulldogs during the 2017 NCAA Men's Final Four National Championship game at University of Phoenix Stadium.
The #FinalFour hadn't been played in the pacific time zone in over 20 years before Phoenix hosted the event in 2017.
A little less than six years out from tip-off at the 2024 Final Four, the host committee will begin to get going on the post-bid execution right away.
The NCAA announced that Phoenix and Glendale earned the 2024 Final Four as it released the hosts for the men's basketball NCAA Tournament events from 2023 through 2026 on Monday.
The other finalists were Detroit, Los Angeles and North Texas. "We embraced the Final Four, and we wanted the opportunity again". According to an ASU study, the 2017 Final Four weekend brought in more than $300 million. "From last year's overtime game in Super Bowl LI to Villanova's buzzer beater to win the NCAA men's basketball championship two years ago, NRG is home to sports excitement". OR and SC were the other participants. Only Kansas City, which was the site of 10 Final Fours from 1940-88, has been the site of more. We will also host an NCAA Men's Regional in 2020. Duke has won three (1991, 2010, 2015) of the seven national championships crowned in Indianapolis, while Louisville, Arizona, Michigan State and Florida captured the others. "We look forward to continued collaboration with the NCAA on future men's basketball events, while teaming to host seven upcoming NCAA championship events in Detroit". All those cities have hosted the event with overwhelming success in recent years, and yet all of them approached the bid process with an unassuming energy.
The 2025 Final Four is expected to deliver an even greater economic impact and will be held in the Alamodome, which will receive additional improvements and upgrades to the fifth floor including new flooring, lighting and concessions.
