TSE Consulting congratulates its US City Clients Phoenix and Columbus for their successful NCAA Final Four Bids
TSE Consulting congratulates both of its clients on their accomplishments. These awards were the culmination of an 18 month process that required collaboration, cooperation and communication among numerous partners and stakeholders. Both Phoenix and Columbus executed their strategic plans flawlessly, which resulted in their success.
Phoenix was announced as the host of the 2017 Men's Final Four to be hosted at University of Phoenix Stadium April 1-3, 2017. This marks the first time the Final Four will be played in the West since 1995 when it was hosted in Seattle. The Phoenix bid was a collaborative effort, with Arizona State University and the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority, local municipalities, sports organisations and tourism bureaus working together under one banner.
In a separate announcement, Columbus, Ohio was awarded the 2018 Women's Final Four to be contested in Nationwide Arena in downtown Columbus. This will mark the first time Columbus will play host to this prestigious event, although not the first time for the Buckeye state (Ohio), having hosted in 1997 in Cincinnati and 2007 in Cleveland.
