Charlotte will host the second and third rounds of the 2015 NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament.


The NCAA made the announcement on Monday with UNC Charlotte hosting games at Time Warner Cable Arena on March 20-22, 2015.


“We are extremely excited to have been selected, along with our wonderful partners, to host the second and third rounds of the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at Time Warner Cable Arena,” Charlotte Athletics Director Judy Rose said in a statement. “I think that it is obvious that the committee feels that Charlotte does a first class job in hosting and that our community embraces the event.  It’s wonderful to be able to bring these games to the city and the great basketball fans we have here.”


Charlotte is tied for third all-time with 86 tournament games hosted. The 2015 dates will be the 22nd time the city has hosted Division I men’s games. Charlotte last hosted the tournament in 2011 when the second and third rounds were at Time Warner Cable Arena.


“It has long been our goal to make Time Warner Cable Arena the premier venue for sports and entertainment in the Carolinas and we are thrilled with today’s announcement by the NCAA,” Bobcats Sports & Entertainment President & COO Fred Whitfield said. “We’ve had great success with the tournament at Time Warner Cable Arena and we look forward to hosting another world-class event in 2015.”
