ARLINGTON (WBAP/KLIF) – The NCAA announced on Tuesday that AT&T Stadium in Arlington will host the 2030 Men’s Final Four.
It will be the third Men’s Final Four in the region. Dallas hosted the games in 1986, and Arlington played host in 2014.
According to the NCAA, AT&T Stadium owns a clean sweep of Final Four attendance records, having drawn 79,444 fans to the national semifinals and 79,238 more to the championship game for a two-session total of 158,682.
The region is no stranger to hosting March Madness. Arlington, Dallas, Denton and Fort Worth have hosted men’s preliminary rounds on 20 different occasions, and Dallas is set to host the 2023 Women’s Final Four and the 2024 men’s South Regional, as well.
“We were 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 and put their best foot forward during this entire process,” Reynolds said. “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.”
The NCAA also announced this week that the Women’s Final Four will return to Dallas in 2031.
