Change to the 2021 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament
The NCAA just announced that the entire 2021 Men's Basketball tournament will be held in one city (most likely Indianapolis).

Quote:Due to challenges associated with the coronavirus pandemic, the entire 2021 NCAA men's basketball tournament will be played in one location, the NCAA announced Monday.

The NCAA said it is in talks with Indianapolis and the surrounding metro area to be that location.

The decision comes after NCAA officials met to consider a variety of contingency plans. The move means that 13 sites across the country will no longer host a preliminary round of the NCAA tournament.

The NCAA did qualify that they are in talks with Indianapolis, but do have other cities in mind, if they can't work out an arrangement with Indianapolis and get the cooperation of the State of Indiana.

Possible Venus (Indianapolis Star)
Lucas Oil Stadium (70,000)
Bankers Life Fieldhouse (20,000)
Hinkle Fieldhouse, Butler University (9,100)
Farmers Coliseum (6,800)
Nicoson Hall, University of Indianapolis (4,000)
Physical Education Center, Marian University (1,500)
Indiana Convention Center*
Southport Fieldhouse, Southport High School (7,300)**

Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, Indiana University 50 miles (17,222)***
Mackey Arena, Purdue University 65 miles (14,123)***
Worthen Arena, Ball State University 60 miles (11,500)***
Hulman Center, Indiana State University 75 miles (10,200)***

* if no fans allowed at games
** only if school is not in session
*** If nearby sites outside of metro are chosen

I imagine, that's a very real possibility, if they use the dome for early round games.
