DETROIT — The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee has announced the selection of cities that will host Final Four games from 2027-2030.

The NCAA Final Four returns to Detroit in 2027 after first hosting the sport in 2009. The chosen venue for the 2027 event will once again be at Ford Field.

“Detroit is increasingly recognized as one of America’s greatest sports cities and one of the best places in the country to visit,” said Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. “Today’s decision by the NCAA to host its Final Four tournament in 2027 at Ford Field is further evidence of that. It’s also great news for our city’s restaurants, shops and hotels.”

Ford Field was the first venue to use a round-robin seating configuration for the men’s Final Four and holds the attendance records for the regional semifinal at 57,528 and the regional championship game at 57,563, respectively. In 2009, Detroit also hosted the national championship game.

Site selection for the NCAA Final Four is highly competitive, and Mayor Duggan thanked the Detroit Sports Commission, Detroit Sports Organizing Corp. and Visit Detroit for preparing another winning entry.

Other cities chosen to host the tournaments are Las Vegas, Indianapolis and Dallas.
