NCAA Selects Indiana To Host All 2021 Men's March Madness Games

Jan 4, 2021

Indiana will host all of this year’s NCAA March Madness Men’s tournaments following discussions with state and local officials about logistics and health concerns.

The decision is unprecedented, but follows what professional leagues including the NBA have done to continue competing during COVID-19.

While most games will be held in Indianapolis, some early games will be played in Bloomington and West Lafayette.

Indiana Sports Corporation President Ryan Vaughn said it’s going to take the whole city of Indianapolis to make everyone feel safe and welcome.

“Indy quite literally was made for this moment,” said Vaughn. “So now let’s all go out there and be the best partners we can be for the NCAA; let’s wear our mask, wear it today so they can play. Let’s help all these student athletes with this incredible experience.”

Evansville will host the Men’s Division II tournament and Fort Wayne will host Men’s Division III.
