How host cities are chosen
Future Final Four locations – all served by Paramount Business Jets -- have been selected by the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee for the next five years. They are:
- 2017: Phoenix
- 2018: San Antonio
- 2019: Minneapolis
- 2020: Atlanta
- 2021: Indianapolis (home of the NCAA headquarters)
Host cities for all phases of the tournament are determined by committee votes on the bids it receives. The committee has said it tries to choose sites from all regions, the West, South, North, East and Midwest, to make men’s basketball a truly national sport.
It looks for neutral sites, usually in arenas bigger than the average college arena to accommodate the crowds.
Of the more than 350 Division 1 schools in the country that are eligible to play in the tournament (assuming they have men’s basketball teams), these are the schools that have won the most national titles:
- University of Kentucky
- University of North Carolina
- Duke University
- Indiana University
- University of Connecticut
- University of Kansas
- University of Louisville
