University of Phoenix Stadium has landed the 2024 NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four and National Championship.
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.
The event was spread out at the same cities over the previous four years, including San Antonio this past spring. "From our City partners and host institutions to our volunteers and fans, San Antonio enthusiastically embraces this event, and we're excited to bring back another Men's Final Four". "So when the Final Four returns, we will be seasoned veterans in hosting the thrilling Men's Division I college basketball championship competition".
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 Women's Final Four has also been held in Indianapolis three times (2005, 2011 and 2016). Today's announcement culminated months of planning, meetings, facility diagrams, renderings, and presentations.

The NCAA announced its decision Monday during a live feed on its Twitter account.
"We felt 2018 was the greatest site visit we could give the NCAA and there's risk that things go wrong, but it went extremely well", said Russ Bookbinder, president/CEO of San Antonio Sports. "The San Antonio Local Organizing Committee is comprised of passionate, committed people who did an excellent job collaborating to secure the Final Four yet again".
"We had confidence in what we had done (in 2017)", Johnson said.
"Very few destinations have as many cities involved - perhaps Los Angeles might be the only other - but a frequent big event city ... we're probably the most unique in terms of having myriad municipalities and different CVBs", President and CEO of Visit Phoenix Steve Moore said. "We promise another unbelievable effort from the Sun Devil community and will shine again in 2024".
