Another win for Arlington.
Final Four Coming To N. Texas In 2014
ARLINGTON (CBS 11 News) ― The NCAA announced Wednesday that the men's Final Four will be played in Arlington in 2014.
North Texas is one of 10 communities which applied to become the hosts for the Final Four Men's basketball tournaments being played between 2012 and 2016.
The 2014 Final Four will be played at the new Dallas Cowboys stadium in Arlington. The stadium will also host the 2010 NBA All-Star Game and the 2011 Super Bowl.
Also Wednesday, the NCAA announced the locations of the other Final Fours through the year 2016. They are: New Orleans in 2012, Atlanta in 2013, Indianapolis in 2015 and Houston in 2016.
A group representing North Texas including officials from the Dallas Cowboys, Big Twelve Conference and civic leaders made a 45 minute, high-tech Power Point presentation to the NCAA in Indianapolis last week.
In the presentation, the committee proposed that the stadium could hold a capacity of 90,000 for a college basketball game.
2010 will mark the second time North Texas has hosted the men's Final Four. Reunion Arena in Dallas hosted the championship in 1986.
I'm sure everyone will enjoy the amenities of Glory Park...oh wait.
Good news for Dallas!
Dallas uber alles
This is definitely good news for the region!
Hopefully by then my Blue Devils will be back in Final Four form.
What a terrible place to watch a basketball game, though :\
Dallas uber alles

The 2014 North Texas Final Four Is Imminent
First off: the 2014 Men’s Final Four will be played at AT&T Stadium on Saturday, April 5, and Monday, April 7. It is sold out....
...there will be a three-day March Madness Music Festival (in April, so it’s like Oktoberfest in September, I guess) during Final Four weekend. It will be held at the former site of Reunion Arena. expecting a crowd (over the three days) in the neighborhood of 150,000.
...The Convention Center will host Bracket Town. WHAT’S BRACKET TOWN? ... family-friendly activities. A budget-friendly, four-day indoor interactive event”
... first time ever, the Final Four will include a media party. You probably don’t care about that. It will be on the set of Dallas
And so castles made of sand, slips into the sea, eventually.
