Indiana to host 2021 NCAA Tournament, most games set for Indianapolis

As expected, the 2021 NCAA Tournament will take place in one host location: Indiana. Most of the tournament’s sites seem to be stationed in Indianapolis; however, some games will be played at nearby college arenas, too. The 2020 NCAA Tournament was canceled due to COVID-19.

The event will function with a bubble-like format for all 68 teams. However, the NCAA didn’t stipulate how frequently the participants will be tested.

Selection Sunday is set for March 14. Lucas Oil Stadium will host the Final Four: games on April 3 and April 5.

According to Matt Norlander of CBS Sports, games will be played at six different venues:

    • Bankers Life Fieldhouse
      • Home of the Indiana Pacers
    • Hinkle Fieldhouse
      • Home of the Butler Bulldogs
    • Lucas Oil Stadium
      • Home of the Indianapolis Colts
      • Two courts, one game at a time

      • Home of the Purdue Boilermarkers
