The NCAA is following the same idea for its women’s basketball tournament as it is with the men. In other words, the entire women’s tourney will be held in and around San Antonio, with the majority of games to take place at The Alamodome.
That’s a similar setup to the men’s tournament, which will be held almost exclusively in Indianapolis, with a few early-round games held just outside the downtown area.
“We appreciate the historical significance of moving the entire championship to one region and want to acknowledge the work by the Women’s Basketball Committee and staff, our hosts, local organizers and ESPN that has allowed us to make plans for a successful 2021 championship,” said Lynn Holzman, NCAA vice president of women’s basketball, via The Associated Press.
“We’re fortunate to be working with San Antonio, which features one of the most experienced local organizing committees in the country, and our No. 1 priority is to focus on creating and implementing safety controls in an environment for student-athletes, coaches, administrators, officials and everyone else associated with the championship.”
