Despite not landing basketball, Detroit will still be host to multiple NCAA championships in the near future: The 2020 Frozen Four (LLCA), fencing championships (Cobo Center), the 2020 women's bowling championships (Thunderbowl Lanes), the 2021 women's golf championsips (TPC Michigan), the 2022 men's wrestling championships (LCA) and the 2022 Division II men's golf championships (TPC Michigan). "After hosting a tremendous Final Four in the spring, we put forward a very strong, comprehensive bid". San Antonio will host the Final Four for a fifth time in 2025, joining Kansas City, Indianapolis, New York, Louisville, New Orleans and Seattle as the only cities to do so. Phoenix (2024), San Antonio (2025), and Indianapolis (2026) have also been named host cities. The submission for the bid was compiled by the Detroit Sports Commission in an effort to bring the tournament back to the city for the first time since 2009, which saw North Carolina beat Michigan State University in the finals at Ford Field.

The Final Four announcement came on Monday, live on the NCAA's Twitter page, less than two months after the National Football League awarded Super Bowl LVII to Arizona.

"I don't know and we'll get to debrief with the NCAA, hopefully by the end of the week", Carnes said.

Djokovic was overcome with emotion following his victory: "It's hard to pick the words [for how this feels]". And play resumed on Centre Court under the roof on Saturday, despite it being a warm and sunny day.

"We are thrilled for the cities of Houston, Phoenix, San Antonio and Indianapolis. They'll see how that stadium works, and it's a little bit different with open air (University of Phoenix has a roof that was closed during the 2017 Final Four)".

The 2018 Men's Final Four, which was held March 30-April 2 in San Antonio had an estimated economic impact of $185 million. "We want to make that ease of getting out to the stadium as best as they can". "That will only improve what already is good". It will seat 70,000 with expandable seating to 100,000 for mega events.

"We're so excited that the Final Four is returning to San Antonio", said UTSA Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Lisa Campos. "But if I had to give my best guess, it was that we just showed them that we could do it".
