The 2016 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships at Madison Square Garden will mark only the third time the championships have taken place in the state of New York.

More than 2,400 student-athletes from across the country will compete for the opportunity to become one of 330 wrestlers to advance to the championships at Madison Square Garden.
In 2012, Madison Square Garden hosted its first college wrestling event with the inaugural Grapple at The Garden, welcoming 14 Division I programs. Since then, Grapple at The Garden has featured more than 30 NCAA institutions.
The NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships have had five consecutive sell outs: 2010 in Omaha, Nebraska, 2011 in Philadelphia, 2012 in St. Louis, 2013 in Des Moines, Iowa and 2014 in Oklahoma City. The 2015 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships are set for March 19-21 at Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
