The NCAA has made a decision that they have never had to make, not allow fans to watch the most watched basketball tournament in the world.

March Madness will be a lot different this year. The general public will not be allowed to attend any NCAA basketball tournament game, men’s or women’s due to the COVID-19 virus.

Mark Emmert, President of the NCAA, released the statement below.

Now the question becomes where do the games get played. The NCAA could end up reciprocating the Final Four.


As for the NCAA games being on TV. Emmert says no change in television coverage.
