Houston, Phoenix among future Final Four sites

Final Four basketball court

Phoenix (2024), San Antonio (2025), and Indianapolis (2026) have also been named host cities. "The Final Four is more than just great games, it's a spectacular opportunity for our statewide tourism industry and a platform to showcase Arizona to an global audience". At the time, it was the second-highest total in history.

It's more of the same in college basketball when it comes to awarding the sport's signature event to a host city.

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 Alamo city has hosted various rounds of the tournament 10 times and will also host the 2022 South Regional. CFP semifinals will be held here in the 2019-20, 2022-23 and 2025-26 postseasons.

The organizing committee once again touted the downtown footprint, the city's hospitality and access to every Final Four event.

"We are thrilled for the cities of Houston, Phoenix, San Antonio and Indianapolis".

Indianapolis is planet Earth's best event hosting city, and it's not even close. "We look forward to bringing the NCAA's marquee championship back to those locations".

Judge orders alleged Russian agent Maria Butina jailed
In a statement to reporters after the hearing, Driscoll said Butina wanted to send love to her parents and tell them she was OK. Butina had been living in Washington since 2016, after coming to the US on a student visa to study at American University.

"It went really well", Johnson said of the 2017 event. The feedback we received from our constituents was overwhelmingly positive. "That will only improve what already is good".

The three finalists not chosen were North Texas, Detroit and Los Angeles.

Johnson admitted the short time between the 2017 Final Four and Wednesday's presentation was a benefit for Arizona's group. We were nervous. This was not a slam dunk by any means. "We're very happy to be successful". "We had engagement and community participation and that's a great thing".

Other stadiums in this bidding cycle included AT&T Stadium in Arlington and the under construction Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park. It will seat 70,000 with expandable seating to 100,000 for mega events. Only Kansas City, which was the site of 10 Final Fours from 1940-88, has been the site of more.

The economic impact is big.
