INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA says it plans to hold the entire 2021 men's college basketball tournament in one geographic location to mitigate the risks of COVID-19.

It is in talks with Indianapolis to be the host city. The Final Four is already set to be held in Indianapolis next year.

The association said it is relocating early-round games that had been scheduled to be played at 13 already-determined sites.

The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee said hosting all 68 teams in one place would “enhance the safety and well-being of the event.”
