Georgia Tech, Atlanta to Host 2020 Men's Final Four

Nov. 14, 2014

THE FLATS – The Georgia Institute of Technology and the Atlanta Sports Council will co-host the 2020 NCAA Division I Men’s Final Four at the new Atlanta Falcons Stadium, the men’s basketball committee announced Friday on CBS Sports Network.

Atlanta has been the site of four Men’s Final Fours – 1977 (The Omni), 2002 (Georgia Dome), 2007 (Georgia Dome), and 2013 (Georgia Dome). It has also been the host city for two Women’s Final Fours – 1993 (The Omni) and 2003 (Georgia Dome).

“Once again, Georgia Tech and the Atlanta Host Basketball Committee have the opportunity to host a premier NCAA championship event with the 2020 Final Four at the new Atlanta Stadium,” Georgia Tech AD Mike Bobinski said. “We’re excited to be the host school in what will be the finest sports venue in the country.”

During the 2012-13 season, Bobinski was the chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee, a successful role that concluded with the 2013 Final Four held in Atlanta.

In addition to the previous four Final Four events, Atlanta and Georgia Tech have hosted eight regionals and have seven times been the hosts for First & Second Round games:
