Indy Will Host NCAA March Madness!!

The NCAA announced yesterday that all 67 men’s basketball tournament games including the Final Four will be played entirely in Indiana. Gov. Eric Holcomb said Indiana is a basketball state, and is beyond excited to safely host the 2021 NCAA men’s Division I, II and III basketball championships. Games will be played on two courts inside Lucas Oil Stadium as well as at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Hinkle Fieldhouse, Indiana Farmers Coliseum, Mackey Arena at Purdue and Assembly Hall in Bloomington. Only one game at a time will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium. Championship weekend is still scheduled for April 3 and April 5 but preliminary round dates have not yet been determined. Still to be determined is how many fans will be allowed inside the venues. NCAA officials said a limited number of family members of players and coaches could attend games but decisions about expanding attendance or conducting fan events will be announced later this year. Ball State, Butler, Indiana, IUPUI, Purdue and the Horizon League will co-host the tournament and NCAA officials say most games will be played in Indianapolis.
