The city is being tapped to host the NCAA Men's Final Four.
The NCAA announced yesterday that the Big Easy will play host to the NCAA Men's Final Four in April 2022.
“We are thrilled to bring the Final Four back to the great city and people of New Orleans,” said Dan Gavitt, NCAA Senior Vice President of Basketball. “The rich history of the Final Four in this city has us excited for the great moments to come in 2022.”
The incoming tournament marks the sixth time New Orleans will host the event after having hosted in 1982, 1987, 1993, 2003, and 2012.
New Orleans will be one of only five cities to host to the NCAA Men's Final Four five or more times. Other cities on the list include Louisville, Kansas City, Seattle and New York City.
