When March Madness was cancelled last year, that’s when I knew that the pandemic was real. Only something big could take down one of the largest sporting events of the year.
Make no mistake, NCAA isn’t planning on another year without their money-making tournament. And it looks like they’re taking their cues from the NBA—rather than spreading the games across 13 different cities as previously planned, they’re looking to move the entire tournament to one city.
Indianapolis might just be that city.
According to CBS 4, the NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball Committee is in talks with the city to host all of the games in March and April. This would essentially be the same idea as the NBA bubble, I guess we could start calling it the NCAA bubble.
The whole thing is in the very early stages so no word on fans or revenue for the city. But this could be BIG for downtown.
