No ticket? No problem! The Final Four experience is much more than two Semifinal games on Saturday and a Championship game on Monday. Everyone is invited to free and low-cost events and entertainment around the city all weekend long. The Final Four is as much for locals as it is for visitors, with interactive events for all ages, that ensure an inclusive celebration with something for everyone. To make an impact on the local community that is serving as its host, the NCAA and MLOC have developed a number of fun events that represent the spirit of the student-athlete and the Final Four.
