2023-26 Final Four sites picked

Indy last hosted the Men's Final Four in 2015

Detroit was one of seven finalists vying for a slot to host the Final Four series - other finalists included Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Dallas, and San Antonio.

The Alamodome, which has hosted the previous four events in San Antonio, will once again be the site of the 2025 event, but changes are expected to be made to the venue before then. It was the first Final Four held in Arizona.

"The state of Indiana is a place with deep roots in the basketball community, making it our privilege and honor to host the NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four for the ninth time", said Ryan Vaughn, president of the Indiana Sports Corp.

But the stadium won't have a chance to top that mark anytime soon.

Including the 2023 Super Bowl, which Arizona landed back in May, the 2024 Final Four will be the eighth mega-event (a saying that mainly encompasses the Super Bowl, college football national championship and Final Four) for Arizona since University of Phoenix Stadium opened in 2006. "We had more volunteers than any other destination so that was a selling point".

"We thought they could have gone either way", for a Final Four site in the west, Johnson said.

Johnson wasn't keen about harping on Phoenix's past mega-event history. "It's either apprehension (over the unknown) or they're building a new stadium".

The two Final Four semifinal games on Saturday, March 31, drew a crowd of 68,257, the largest for a sporting event at the Alamodome.

Economic impact from the 2017 Final Four was an estimated $324.5 million, according to a student by ASU's W.P. Carey School of Business. "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". "Major events create a strong sense of pride for all Arizonans". "We want to make that ease of getting out to the stadium as best as they can". The 2015 Super Bowl was played in Glendale but the area had 26 months to prepare for the Final Four.

Locations for the 2024 preliminary rounds have not been announced yet.
