Fort Wayne will once again play host to the NCAA Division III Men’s Basketball Championship on March 14 & 16, 2024. It will be the 4th time Fort Wayne has hosted this event.

“It is a privilege to welcome the top Division III basketball teams to our community, and the local organizing committee looks forward to building upon their success in creating an exceptional student-athlete and fan experience,” said Jill Boggs, Visit Fort Wayne President, and CEO.

Hosting an NCAA event brings prestige to our community, helps build our profile as a sports tourism destination, and has had an average economic impact of $650,000. At any division of NCAA athletics, there is a standard that hosts meet for the organization, student-athletes, and committee members. Fort Wayne and the local organizing committee – Visit Fort Wayne, Manchester University, and the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum – have proven the ability to do just that and are only reaffirmed through NCAA’s continued partnership. Fort Wayne is set to host the championship through 2026.
