Phoenix, Glendale to host NCAA Final Four in 2024

Most, too, experienced the 2017 Final Four first-hand, and Johnson wanted to capitalize on the fresh memories. "We just hosted the best Final Four in tournament history three months ago, and we had to go to Boston to put on a show about why it'll be even bigger and better than we just did".

The NCAA on Monday afternoon released the Final Four sites for the next set of four years, with San Antonio, which by almost all accounts has been universally praised as a wonderful host city for the Final Four, earning its way back into the coveted rotation for the fifth time since 1998. That visit came on the heels the NFL's announcement that Arizona would host Super Bowl LVII in 2023. Other pre-game activities will be held all around the Valley.

The NCAA also announced the two tournament hosts following 2024 and the one preceding. San Antonio was one of seven cities vying for the marquee event in 2023-2026 cycle, including Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, North Texas and Phoenix. I am extremely happy that the NCAA has chosen Houston and Harris County to once again host their 2023 NCAA Men's Final Four tournament.

All four cities have hosted the event in the past. They get together on a regular basis to discuss the specifics of each mega-event bid, sharing resources and knowledge in a collective way that countless other cities fail to do. Couldn't bid again until 2027.

The new Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park is expected to open in 2020. "So when the Final Four returns, we will be seasoned veterans in hosting the thrilling Men's Division I college basketball championship competition".

"We thought they could have gone either way", for a Final Four site in the west, Johnson said. Dawn Rogers filled that role for the 2017 Final Four and now is Baylor deputy athletic director.
