Yesterday, the NCAA announced the host sites for the 2023-2026 NCAA Championships. There are a few repeat sites as well as one newcomer. La Crosse, Wisconsin, is set to host this season, and Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was already on the schedule for 2022.
2023 – Roanoke, Virginia – Berglund Center – host: Ferrum
2024 – La Crosse, Wisconsin – La Crosse Center – host: UW-La Crosse
2025 – Providence, Rhode Island – Dunkin’ Donuts Center – host: Johnson & Wales
2026 – Cedar Rapids, Iowa – U.S. Cellular Center – host: American Rivers Conference
The Bergund Center hosted the most recent NCAA Championships in 2019, while La Crosse and Cedar Rapids have hosted the event regularly in the past. Johnson & Wales will bring the championships to New England for the first time since 1993. The Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence is the home of the AHL Providence Bruins and the Providence College men’s basketball team. With a seating capacity of over 11,000 for ice hockey, it will be one of the largest venues to ever host the event, and may actually be the largest.
