On Tuesday, the NCAA unveiled the logo for the 2017 Final Four, which is scheduled to be held in Phoenix.
“The NCAA could not be more thrilled to bring its marquee championship back to the western part of the country,” said Dan Gavitt, the NCAA’s vice president for men’s basketball. “The logo unveiling is our annual countdown to the Final Four for our hosts, and the people from Arizona State University and the Phoenix Local Organizing Committee were terrific in staging this event. Having administrators and coaches from around the state who have deep connections to the state of Arizona, the city of Phoenix and the history of March Madness made today’s unveiling special. We are looking forward to working with Dawn Rogers and her team over the next year and a half to plan and stage a memorable Final Four.”
The 2017 Final Four will take place at University of Phoenix Stadium. It will be the first time the city has hosted a Final Four, and the first time the Final Four has gone out west since 1995 when Seattle hosted the championship event.
