The construction and instillation of the Final Four court begins a year prior to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. For the 2015 court, construction began in the summer of 2014. The court’s construction history is outlined below.
Connor Sports, the official floor provider of the NCAA® Final Four®, kicked off March Madness with the Official Court Tour on March 18th. The court’s journey to the Final Four is called The Connor Sports/UPS Final Four Floor Tour, thanks to a partnership between Connor Sports and UPS. The tour follows the Final Four court from Shelley, Idaho to the final stop of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, The Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.
