The NCAA Women’s Final Four has announced the fan activations that will take place throughout Dallas leading to the games at the American Airlines Center on March 31 and April 2.
For only the second time in the 41-year history of NCAA women’s basketball, the NCAA Division II and III national championships also will be decided at the Women’s Final Four site. Both games will be on April 1 at the American Airlines Center.
“The 2023 Women’s Final Four and combined championships will be a remarkable event thanks to the strong working relationship and cooperation between the NCAA, the Dallas Local Organizing Committee, the city of Dallas and the state of Texas,” said Monica Paul, executive director of the Dallas Sports Commission. “We have worked closely with the NCAA since the event was awarded to Dallas in 2018 and it will truly be an honor to host the Women’s Final Four for a second time.”
Interactive fan activities outside the venue will take place throughout the week.
