3 1st-timers among potential hosts for NCAA tournament
Sports Illustrated
The eight cities named as potential Final Four hosts from 2017-2020 feature five familiar domes. Fortunately, there's a trio of new venues in the mix. Of the eight finalists, Phoenix is the only city not to have previously hosted a Final Four, but the Minneapolis bid includes the new Vikings stadium, set to open in 2016. The Atlanta bid aces out the Georgia Dome in favor of the new Falcons Stadium, planned for 2017. Still, the regions named have combined to host 24 previous men's Final Fours, plus the tournament this year and next.
