NCAA in Pittsburgh

The SportsPITTSBURGH team is proud to partner with the NCAA

The Pittsburgh Difference

The SportsPITTSBURGH team celebrated its inaugural year in 2016 with many impressive accomplishments including participation on a local bid committee that was formed to submit 70 separate NCAA® championship bids under one Pittsburgh proposal. Pittsburgh was awarded 22 NCAA preliminary and championship events from 2018-2022, more than any other city. The city followed that impressive campaign with the awarding of 11 additional NCAA preliminary and championship events for the 2022-26 cycle. 

SportsPITTSBURGH has been honored to welcome so many talented student-athletes to the Pittsburgh region, to support them as they work hard to achieve life-long dreams and to crown dozens of deserving champions in the City of Champions.

With each NCAA® Championship event, SportsPITTSBURGH strives to provide an Iconic Experience to not only the student-athletes and fans, but also to the NCAA® staff, committee members and media. The SportsPITTSBURGH Team looks forward to welcoming future NCAA Championship events.
