Fort Worth, a Basketball Town?

Less than a month after the TCU basketball team won the NIT Championship, Fort Worth scored a gig to be one of the hosts of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament in March 2022. Some of the first- and second-round games will be played in the new Dickies Arena, currently under construction with an anticipated November 2019 grand opening date. Additionally, Fort Worth will host the NCAA women’s gymnastics championships starting in 2019 at the Fort Worth Convention Center before moving to the Dickies Arena in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
