NEW ORLEANS — The NCAA men’s basketball Final Four is returning to New Orleans in 2022.

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell helped lead a “tip off” event near champion square on Tuesday.

They touched on the economic impact the event brings and how the city is ready to rollout the red carpet.

This will be the city’s sixth time hosting the event – the first since 2012.
