The NCAA Women’s Final Four will return to San Antonio in 2029.
The tournament will be held at the Alamodome, according to an NCAA news release. Previously, San Antonio and its downtown domed stadium have hosted the women’s version of the Final Four — the semifinals and finals of the NCAA tournament — in 2002, 2010 and 2021.
In 2021, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, San Antonio and the surrounding region played host to the entire 63-game NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship, which relied on a controlled environment.
The Alamodome was the site when Stanford claimed the 2021 title in front of a limited capacity audience. It was also the site in 2002 when the all-time Women’s Final Four attendance record of 29,619 was set at the national semifinals and the national championship game.
We're excited San Antonio was selected as a host city for our fourth Women's Final Four! Mark your calendars for March 30 & April 1, 2029. https://t.co/PRQYPkGent #OneTeam #WFinalFour #MarchMadness pic.twitter.com/0GP0bzOXRP
