The Venues of March Madness

The NCAA regular season is complete and the various conference tournaments are now underway. Soon America will be holding its collective breath as the field for the 2019 Men’s Basketball Championship Tournament is announced on Selection Sunday, March 17, 2019.

Beginning that night and into the workday on Monday, millions of basketball bracket pools will be filled out in the hope of correctly selecting the Final Four and the eventual National Champion.

But before that happens, March Madness will take fans, either in person or via TV, to venues throughout the country for the four regional bracket games.
