Detroit will host several NCAA rounds in the coming years. The new Little Caesars Pizza arena is supposed to be incredible and will open in the fall.

Didn't know that about Detroit. Glad that both NHL and NBA will be playing under one roof, and back in Detroit proper. That's how it should be, IMO.

Yeah, it will be great. The Palace is still awesome, but it's too far north for much of Metro Detroit. Rumor has it that one of the car companies is going to buy it and it's going to be torn down. So many memories of the Bad Boys and the Wallace - Billups teams, but I understand the business behind the move.

Another rumor is that Chris Illitch is going to sell the Tigers. It's the reason the rumors of trading Verlander and Cabrera were out there this past winter.

How is it too far north? Most of the money in Metro Detroit is in Oakland County.

RE: Projecting NCAA tournament sites for 2019-22
do we know where each final 4 will be?

you got to figure the new NFL stadiums in Los Angeles, Minnesota, and Atlanta will be in the mix for a final 4 or maybe a regional final.

the interesting one will be the new NFL stadium in Las Vegas. It would be ideal for a final 4, but the NCAA has rule that you can't have a NCAA championship game in Las Vegas

There is a bunch of money in Oakland County, especially around the Palace. The issue is there are growing areas southwest of there. Areas like Plymouth, Canton, Salem, Northbille, Walled Lake and many more would be closer to Little Ceasars than the Palace. Even towns like Royal Oak and Farmington Hills would be closer. There's also a resurgence in Detroit itself as there are many young couples heading into the Stadium/Greektown district.

Minneapolis is hosting in 2019(which is also why the area is not listed in my projections. I've no idea if they're even bothering to bid for 2021 and 22.), Atlanta is in 2020 and I figure that Los Angeles will get it in 2023. As for Las Vegas, the NCAA DI BOD is voting this month on whether to allow Las Vegas to bid in the future.

You are missing the state of the art stadium that's just about to open. I am sure they will have some regionals before 2020

Indianapolis is hosting in 2021.

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.

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?
