The NCAA women’s basketball is heading to hosts in its regional rounds next year with eight teams each playing in Seattle and Greenville, South Carolina.
Each location will host two regional semi-final matches on March 24th and two more on March 25th. At each location, a regional tournament will be held on March 26 and another on March 27.
In the past, the NCAA Championships had four regional locations.
The NCAA Championship bracket will be revealed on March 12, the same day the men’s championship announces its teams.
The first four women’s matches in the opening round will be played from March 15-16 and will be played on a college campus for teams ranked in the top 16 matches. All sites bidding for the Role of 64 and Role of 32 must agree to this ability to host the first four games.
Beth Goetz, Ball State’s director of athletics, will serve as the president of NCAA Division I women’s basketball for the 2022-23 school year. Lisa Peterson, Oregon’s deputy athletic director, is vice president and will take over as president in 2023-24.
Planning for the 2023 tournament also included updates on operations, management, travel, ticketing, branding, broadcasting, digital/social and media. The committee received a report on planning for the 2023 Women’s Final Four in Dallas, which will host Division I, II and III Women’s National Basketball Championship games at American Airlines Center over two days.
The committee also received an update on the selection process for the sites for the women’s fourth final, which will conclude with the announcement of the 2027-31 sites in November.
