Each year, NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament selects several of the top NCAA college basketball venues and professional sports stadiums in the United States as host sites for March Madness. The 2020 March Madness locations are spread across the country, with a few great new firsts for some venues.
An exciting new addition is the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia hosting the Final Four and the Championship for the first time. They are taking over for the Georgia Dome which was demolished in 2017. The Georgia Dome hosted the Final Four in 2002, 2007 and 2013.
