Our friends at the NCAA have updated their championship site selection and bid process timeline after an internal strategic business review. Please see below:

The process will be adjusted from a four-year process to a two-year process, with hosts and sites being awarded for approximately 88 of the 90 NCAA championships for the 2026-27 and 2027-28 academic years.

Additionally, the opening of the bid portal and publication of bid specifications have been rescheduled for September 6, 2023. These adjustments will help further analyze future processes and allow the ability to upgrade the current bid portal for a better user experience. None of the other key dates have been adjusted.

The timeline for the bid process is as follows: 

August 29, 2023:  Host symposium hosted at NCAA national office

September 6, 2023: Bid specifications will be published on; bid portal opens.

February 7, 2024:  Bid responses due.

March-September 2024:  Committee deliberations, recommendations and approvals.

October 2, 2024:  Hosts/sites announced.

We will work with the NCAA to help provide updated communications throughout the process to keep you well-informed.

If you have any questions regarding the process or timeline, please contact Ryan Tressel at
