Houston will host the games in 2023, San Antonio is set to host in 2025 and Indianapolis will follow in 2026.

Other finalists in the running were Detroit, Los Angeles, and North Texas.

San Antonio played host to the Final Four this past season, which had an economic impact on the city of $185 million and came with a lot of national media attention as a great place to visit, Nirenberg said.

Had Detroit landed one of the seven bids, Ford Field would have likely hosted the Final Four again. Phoenix will get the Final Four for the second time in 2024 after hosting in 2017.

"NRG Stadium has clearly become the top venue in the nation for exciting sports championships over the past couple of years", said Harris County Judge Ed Emmett, also in a statement.
