NCAA Championship Sites Announced For 2019-22

The biggest spectacle in our sport has their home for the next few years. The NCAA championship sites have been announced through the 2021-22 season.

This date had been circled on the calendar, not just for wrestling fans, but throughout the collegiate sports landscape. Here is our article from the last time they were chosen, back in December of 2013. As a reminder, next year's tournament will be at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.

We will be making our annual pilgrimage to Pittsburgh in 2019, one of the toughest areas for high school wrestling in the country. Pittsburgh last hosted the NCAA championships in 1957.

The next year, fans will be heading to the land of 10,000 lakes for the 2020 national championships at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. It is the home of the Minnesota Vikings and just opened this past September. The only other time Minnesota has hosted the tournament was in 1996.

In 2021, a familiar face pops up at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, which has hosted the event eight times since 2000, including this year.

Finally, 2022 will be hosted in an arena that hasn't even opened yet. Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, the future home of the Pistons and Red Wings, is slated to open this fall. NCAAs was also held in the Pistons arena back in 2006.

What 2 Watch 4: Drinking From The Firehose

null

We must prepare ourselves for the third weekend of NCAA wrestling, as things are about to get serious. A favorite metaphor of mine that pertains to trying to do or consume more than is reasonable in any given amount of time is to 'drink from the firehose'. It gets tossed out during things like freshman orientation or during your first week at a new job. I just like because it gives me a chance to post this sublime clip from the hilarious 1989 cult classic 'UHF'.
