NCAA names Georgia the site of four future postseason competitions

NCAA names Georgia the site of four future postseason competitions

This fall, the park plays host to its biggest event yet: The World Rowing Championships, which start September 23. "We look forward to making it an excellent event for everyone involved in the 2020 NCAA Championships". Finally, 2022 will be hosted in an arena that hasn't even opened yet. "We're very proud that the NCAA and lacrosse world recognizes Hofstra as a premiere location for the quarterfinal games". The men's West Regional will be played in San Francisco, which has not been a tournament site since 1960, while Fort Worth, which hasn't been a tournament site since 1970, will host 2022 first- and second-round games.

"It will be really cool to have the games played in such a historic venue as Notre Dame Stadium", added Corrigan.

No stranger to hosting NCAA Championships, NC State has previously hosted gymnastics, men's basketball, golf and swimming and diving NCAA events. The course has hosted three NCAA Regionals, most recently an NCAA Men's Golf Regional in 2012, and one NCAA Final (1947). "The fact we're hosting these tournaments is a bigger testament to how wonderful the city has been in developing these types of opportunities, whether it's hosting championships, getting businesses to come into the area, a number of things". Minnesota last hosted a regional at the Metrodome in 2006.

The NCAA said the Board of Governors "has been assured by the state that this new law allows the NCAA to enact its inclusive policies by contract with communities, universities, arenas, hotels, and other service providers that are doing business with us, our students, other participants and fans".

"It is a tremendous honor for the city of Pittsburgh and the University of Pittsburgh to be chosen as hosts of the 2019 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships", said Director of Athletics Heather Lyke. A total of 613 sites in 43 states were awarded for this cycle.

More than 3,000 bid submissions were received from NCAA member schools, conferences, sports commissions and cities vying to host predetermined rounds for 84 of the organization's 90 championships. Penn State will host the "Midwest" regional in Allentown, PA in both 2018 and 2019. "Getting these championships to Tallahassee has been a personal goal since we first laid it out over six years ago". The site selections follow the NCAA Board of Governors' vote to allow consideration of championship bids in North Carolina.
