NASHVILLE---The NCAA Women’s Final Four is one of America’s most prestigious women’s championship sporting events, and this April it will be coming to Nashville and the Bridgestone Arena.

The crowning of the national champion on April 8 will be the pinnacle experience for the student-athletes, coaches and fans. But in addition to the games, a number of ancillary events are planned to be included in the Women’s Final Four weekend, for the entire Nashville community to enjoy.

"The Women’s Final Four offers numerous fan interactive opportunities whether or not you have a game ticket,” said Anucha Browne, NCAA vice president, women’s basketball championships. “The Women’s Final Four is more than three games and we encourage the entire Nashville community, as well as the thousands of women’s basketball fans and coaches in attendance, to take advantage of every opportunity.”
