I could see Los Angeles getting 2022 since it will have been five years since the Final Four will have been on the West Coast. If LA does wind up with the 2024 Olympics, they'll need to clear some space in 2023 for test events. The IOC also doesn't like to have its thunder stolen.

New Orleans has the 2022 Final Four, not LA. But then again, I could see a 2024 Final Four in LA as another test event for the Olympics.

For those in the know, what are the attendance requirements for hosting the 1st two rounds? Fort Worth is building a new arena with about 14K seats, so don't know if that would work if they ever wanted to bid.

That new arena is a perfect size to host, but you have to get someone like TCU to serve as the host member.

UT-Arlington and North Texas are also available as hosts.

Also, the Big 12 can host, as they did with the Final Four in Arlington. The Big 12 stepped in to host in Oklahoma City in place of OU, so that OU would be eligible to play there. Likewise, they have hosted in Kansas City, allowing Kansas to be eligible to play there.

The new Bucks arena, which Marquette will play at, will be a great stadium for basketball.

Looks great! Milwaukee can be like a midwest version of Portland.

RE: Projecting NCAA tournament sites for 2019-22
Cincinnati was just announced as a site for the 1st & 2nd round in 2022. However, there's a catch. It's conditional on upgrading US Bank Arena (estimated to cost $200 million). The owner of the arena (a large corporation based in L.A.) has been begging the city for a handout for almost a decade, and the answer has consistently been "no."

I've never heard of the NCAA making a conditional award of a tournament site before. Has anyone else?
