Vegas oddsmakers, officials say NFL finally hears message

Fans cheer as the Oakland Raiders announce their fourth-round pick during an NFL football draft event on April 29, 2017, in Las Vegas. The NCAA announced Tuesday that the 2028 Final Four will be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

The Final Four is headed for the first time to Las Vegas, where wagering on the NCAA Tournament has long been a staple of March Madness revelry, after the NCAA awarded the men's national semifinals and championship game to Allegiant Stadium for the 2027-28 season.

The NCAA also announced Tuesday that Ford Field in Detroit would host the Final Four in 2027, while Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis would get the 2029 event and AT&T Stadium in Dallas would get the 2030 event.
