Arizona earns hosting duties for 2024 Final Four

The NCAA awarded the 2024 Final Four Monday and also granted Houston (2023), San Antonio (2025) and Indianapolis (2026) the right to host college basketball's largest championship event.

"San Antonio continues to raise the bar for the tournament", Mayor Ron Nirenberg said. Dallas, Detroit and Los Angeles also bid for hosting duties.

Johnson admitted the short time between the 2017 Final Four and Wednesday's presentation was a benefit for Arizona's group.

The 2021 and 2026 Men's Final Fours will be managed by Indiana Sports Corp in partnership with host institutions Horizon League and IUPUI. "We want to make that ease of getting out to the stadium as best as they can".

The Final Four will be played in Minneapolis in 2019, Atlanta in 2020 and New Orleans in 2022. Critics, however, point to events being spread out through the Valley, Uber surge pricing, and the lack of Light Rail, something Glendale nixed again just a year ago.

The Final Four bid was a collaborative effort between the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority, local municipalities, tourism bureaus, ASU, the Arizona Cardinals and the Phoenix Local Organizing Committee (PLOC). 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. And you know what? "They agreed with us and the Final Four is coming back to where it belongs in San Antonio, Texas". That includes possibly adding more permanent suites.

"We're so excited that the Final Four is returning to San Antonio", said UTSA Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Lisa Campos. The result was arguably one of the best Final Fours in the event's history.

Carnes was asked what she thought was the overriding factor in the NCAA's decision to award San Antonio another Final Four. "From their (NCAA) standpoint, there was no hesitation to say we're OK doing 2024 because they did it before (after the Super Bowl)".

"I think the next three to five years are not in the cards, but probably after that at some time", Tellem said.
