Regional sites named for 2021 and 2022 DI Women’s Basketball Championship

7 cities to host games, including Spokane in both years

The NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee has awarded regional-round hosting duties for the 2021 and 2022 championships to seven cities, with Spokane, Washington, hosting in both years. 

Selected to host regionals in 2021 are Albany, New York (Times Union Center); the Austin, Texas, area (H-E-B Center in Cedar Park); Cincinnati (Cintas Center); and Spokane (Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena), with play taking place March 26-29. Albany, which also will serve as a regional host site in 2019, has hosted twice previously, in 2015 and 2018. Austin, which has hosted an NCAA championship-record 18 regional games at the Frank Erwin Center, will host in 2021 at the H-E-B Center. The Cintas Center in Cincinnati will be hosting regional play for the first time after hosting first- and second-round action in 2001, 2010 and 2011. An experienced host site, Spokane previously welcomed regional play in 2001, 2008, 2013, 2015 and 2018.

In 2022, Bridgeport, Connecticut (Webster Bank Arena); Greensboro, North Carolina (Greensboro Coliseum); Spokane; and Wichita, Kansas (Intrust Bank Arena) will serve as the four regional sites, March 25-28. Bridgeport, which previously hosted regional play in 2006, 2013, 2016 and 2017, is currently tied for third on the all-time regional games hosted list with 12 along with another 2022 regional host venue, the Greensboro Coliseum, which hosted regional games in 1999, 2007, 2008 and 2015. Intrust Bank Arena will be hosting regional championship action for the first time, previously hosting first- and second-round play in 2011.

“The committee is pleased that over the next four years regional championship play will take place in 12 different cities, all with proven championship hosting experience,” said Rhonda Lundin Bennett, chair of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee and senior associate athletics director at Nevada. “We are counting on the bar being raised by these host communities so that our student-athletes, teams and fans continue to have an unforgettable championship experience.”
