Back in 2009, the NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four took place at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan, and Michigan State fans probably remember it very well. During that tournament, the Spartans not only advanced to the Final Four, but they advanced all the way to the National Championship Game, where they eventually lost to North Carolina in front of over 70,000 fans at Ford Field. Now, according to reports, the NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four is returning to the Motor City.
When will the NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four return to Ford Field?
On Tuesday, the NCAA announced that the Final Four will return to Ford Field in 2027.
According to Chris Reynolds, who is the chair of the committee, the NCAA was “really impressed with how the presenters from Detroit and North Texas rebounded from the disappointment of not being awarded a Final Four in the previous cycle.”
“These communities should be proud of the leadership displayed by everyone involved with making these bids and ultimately earning the privilege to host an event of this magnitude. Both will be great locations at which to play the Final Four,” said Reynolds.
In addition, it was also announced that the 2024 NCAA tournament Midwest Regional semifinals and final will be held at Little Caesars Arena.
