2024 March Madness Schedule

2024 March Madness Schedule
UD Arena (Site of the First Four)

The 2024 March Madness schedule is just a few weeks away from kicking off. My favorite time of the year. If you are into watching Australian basketball, we have the NBL finals wrapping up in mid-March as we move into the NCAA Men’s basketball tournament season. The 2024 NCAA Tournament Final Four is at State Farm Stadium in Phoenix, Arizona this year. We also go over the future NCAA Tournament sites and Final Four dates for those who like to look ahead.

2024 March Madness Schedule

For those who just like wavetops, here are the 2024 March Madness schedule dates for your planning. The Selection Sunday broadcast will air on St. Patrick’s Day after the last college basketball championship game takes place. Most years, the higher seeds will not be impacted by results on this day. Cinderella gets a vote though and can cause some teams that were on the “Last Four In” cusp to be bumped out of a spot in the tournament by the NCAA Selection Committee. 

Selection Sunday: Sunday, March 17

First Four: March 19-20

First round: March 21-22

Second round: March 23-24 

Sweet 16: March 28-29 

Elite Eight: March 30-31 

Final Four: Saturday, April 6 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

2024 NCAA championship game: Monday, April 8 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

2024 NCAA Tournament Schedule and Locations

The 2024 March Madness schedule kicks off with the First Four that is held at UD Arena in Dayton, Ohio every year. From there, everyone will be getting their NCAA Tournament brackets ready for the first round games that kick off on March 21st and March 22nd. Most brackets get busted by the time we hit the second round. It should be fun to see how the games turn out this season.
