Anyone know why we never get a regional? I've heard it said that it is about the amenities of the arena or availability of hotel rooms.

But with the Forvm, we (arguably) have as nice an arena as most that host regionals, and we must have as many rooms as places like Memphis (South Regional 2021), KC (Midwest 2023), and Louisville (South 2023).

Any inside info? Do we just not apply for regionals?

Yup. I believe is saw MU requests the first weekend due to more games/fan bases.

We do not apply for regionals because they are not as lucrative. First weekend brings 8 teams, 8 fanbases, more media outlets, more traveling parties, and twice the games (thus twice the concessions, ticket sales, etc.).

I asked this exact question knowing we had the Fiserv coming and was told not to expect any change in that regard because there's just not enough money in the regional hosting game.

I find the first weekend to be much more fun. Greater possibility of Cinderella teams, fans from all the different schools, constant games. It’s a blast.

Sweet, two more chances to buy advance tickets at cost and rape the Bucky fans on the secondary market.    ;)
