Welcome to Arizona


On behalf of the Phoenix Final Four Local Organizing Committee (PLOC), we are excited for your attendance April 1-3, 2017 as we host the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.

Here in Arizona, we pride ourselves on being able to offer travel experiences that cannot be found anywhere else. In fact, when it comes to spectacular landscapes, recreational opportunities, luxury resorts, diverse cultural history and warm hospitality, nobody does it better than Arizona.

We hope you take the time to experience our vibrant signature scenery. From the majestic beauty of the Grand Canyon National Park, Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park and Chiricahua National Monument to the inspiring views of the Sonoran Desert, ponderosa pine forests and the breathtaking scenes of numerous statewide lakes, these are just a few of the images that millions of travelers from around the world visit our state to see.

We also encourage you to discover what else Arizona has to offer – our invigorating arts and culture scene, rejuvenating spas, championship golf courses, unique local cuisine, exceptional wineries and a wide-selection of shopping opportunities. You can visit any part of the state and

you’ll experience the very best Arizona has to offer.

The Final Four has evolved into much more than a basketball championship. With a weekend jam-packed with basketball, fan and music festivals, give yourself a few days before the Final Four begins, or stay a few days afterwards, and discover why our state is one of the most vibrant travel destinations in the world. Your adventure starts here, for more information check out

We look forward to your visit!
