The 2018 NCAA Tournament is nearing its end, meaning the college basketball season offseason is close.
Its never too late to look ahead to the future though, specifically at the locations and dates of future March Madness tournaments.
Below is a list of the Final Four locations and preliminary round sites for the next four years.
The NCAA has specific restrictions in place to decide potential Final Four sites. As of 2009, the minimum seating requirement for a facility to house the event is 70,000 and it must be in a domed stadium. The final two rounds havent been played in a basketball arena since 1996. Instead, they are primarily played in football stadiums, with the exception of Floridas Tropicana Field in 1999.
The next two Final Fours will be in newly built arenas (US Bank Stadium and Mercedes-Benz Stadium) while the 2021 and 2022 games will be at familiar venues in Indianapolis (seven-time host) and New Orleans (five-time host).
