Women’s Final Four Bid Specifications (PDF)

Intent to Bid (Form)

Once the Intent to Bid is received, prospective hosts will receive access to the CZ and to all of the Critical Item Documents (hotel inventory, budget template with detailed line items and references, venue agreement and bid questionnaire).  Therefore, it is recommended that interested cities submit the Intent to Bid to gain access to additional information that will ultimately allow the city to decide if they would like to move forward with the process.  The intent to bid is not a commitment to bid, it shows the NCAA your interest in bidding.  Access to the CZ will be provided as early as Wednesday, October 4 with each Intent to Bid that is received.
