Women's Final Four Host Cities Announced
The NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Committee selected five cities to host the Women's Final Four beginning with Denver in 2012. The other Final Four cities are New Orleans (2013), Nashville (2014), Tampa Bay (2015) and Indianapolis (2016).
- The selections culminated a process that began in 2007 involving 12 potential sites. Eight finalist cities were selected in 2008 and visited by members of the women's basketball committee in September and October of that year. Representatives of the eight finalists then made final presentations to the committee in November.
- In selecting a site, the committee took into account the proposed competition venue; convention center; hotel community; transportation plans; proposed legacy programs; financial commitment; and the community and host institution's overall commitment to the event.
- Indianapolis, New Orleans and Tampa Bay have hosted the Women's Final Four previously. Denver and Nashville are first-time Women's Final Four hosts.
