Thirteen cities and regions have been named finalists to host future Men’s and Women’s Final Fours, the NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Basketball Committees announced Monday. The north Texas area is among the eight finalists for the Men’s Final Four, along with Atlanta, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Phoenix/Glendale, San Antonio and St. Louis. The North Texas area has hosted the Men’s Final Four once, with Dallas serving as the 1986 site.
 

The 2014 Men’s Final Four will be played in North Texas, while Indianapolis will host in 2015. Houston will host the event in 2016.
The seven finalist cities under consideration to host a Women’s Final Four during the 2017-20 bid cycle are Columbus, Dallas, Houston, Nashville, New Orleans, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay. Of that list, only New Orleans (1991, 2004 and 2013) and Tampa Bay (2008) have hosted previously. Nashville will serve as host of the 2014 Women’s Final Four, while Tampa Bay will host again in 2015. Indianapolis will host the event in 2016.


The process to identify the Final Four locations for 2017-2020 will be completed in November 2014 for both championships.
