NCAA gives Vegas the 2023 Western Regional Final


Hopefully fans will be allowed by then. This was the first year that Nevada was allowed to bid to be an NCAA tournament site in any sport because "GASP!!!" people gamble here!!!!! Now people gamble everywhere so the Grand PooBahs of the NCAA said NV could finally hold NCAA tournament games here since everyone else is sinning.
Before Vegas submitted a bid, they invited NCAA reps here to look at our facilities. Normally a city has to prove their worth by hosting games the first weekend before they can try for a regional final. But after the NCAA saw our facilities, and the fact that we hold several conference tournaments here simultaneously, they suggested we go for a regional final.
Vegas was given 9 tournament events during 2023-2026, most of them in golf. They are also bidding for the next available Super Bowl.
The basketball regional final will be held in T-Mobile arena.
