What to know about future Final Four sites
All known future sites will be held in football stadiums, a tradition of holding the Final Four in larger stadiums that began in 1971 (Astrodome) and became an annual occurrence in 1997 (RCA Dome).
All of the future sites have already hosted a Final Four except for Allegiant Stadium, as 2028 will be the first time the Final Four will be played in Las Vegas and the state of Nevada.
Lucas Oil Stadium will also be hosting two Final Fours in a four-year span, which will make it the fifth time it will host the event. By 2029, the city of Indianapolis will have hosted 10 Final Fours, tying it with Kansas City for the most times hosting the college basketball finale.
