Tempe Welcomes Final Four Fans

2024 NCAA Men’s Final Four

The Valley of the Sun is gearing up to host the 2024 NCAA Men’s Final Four at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, this spring. Tempe, the sports-centric home of Arizona State University, is excited to welcome fans as we countdown to the National Championship.

2024 NCAA Men’s Final Four Tournament

Mark your calendar for the 2024 NCAA Men’s Final Four in Greater Phoenix. Not only will the National Semifinals take place on April 6, 2024, and the National Championship on April 8, 2024, but fans can expect over-the-top festivities, activations, events and celebrations throughout the week as well.

After all, Arizona is no stranger to hosting this mega event. In 2017, Glendale hosted the NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four tournament at the University of Phoenix Stadium, which has since been renamed to State Farm Stadium. The tournament concluded with North Carolina, Oregon, Gonzaga and South Carolina in the Final Four. UNC emerged victorious over Gonzaga, clinching their sixth National Championship.

With the 2024 NCAA Men’s Final Four competitors still to be determined, the desert is ready to showcase world-class events and activities throughout the tournament. Stay connected to all the action by visiting the official Final Four website.
