The upcoming 2017 championship weekend will be one of the biggest yet, with thousands of fans visiting the Valley of the Sun, March 31 – April 3.

The 2017 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament will involve 68 teams playing in a single-elimination tournament to determine the national champion of men’s NCAA Division I college basketball. It is scheduled to begin on March 14, 2017, and will conclude with the championship game on April 3 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The championship game will be the first contested in a Western state since 1995 when Seattle, Washington was the host of the Final Four for that year. This is the first time Phoenix will host the Final Four. What an honor!
