Minneapolis returns as a Women’s Final Four host city in 2022 after previously hosting in 1995. Games will be played on April 1 and 3 at the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis. The University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, and Minnesota Sports and Events will serve as co-hosts.
The 1995 Women’s Final Four in Minneapolis was a sign of things to come in women’s basketball, as the UConn Huskies, coached by a young upstart named Geno Auriemma, scored the first of their record 11 team national championships. The championship capped a perfect 35-0 season for the Huskies.
“Our women’s basketball community is excited to return to Minnesota, which has a long history of love and support for the game,” said Lynn Holzman, NCAA vice president of women’s basketball. “We look forward to working with our host school in Minnesota, as well as Minnesota Sports and Events, in creating a memorable experience for our teams, fans, and the Twin Cities community.”
