Will there be fans?
NCAA only allows certain fans to participate in the men’s tournament in each round. The social distance of each game will account for 25%. NCAA stated: “Activity capacity will include all participants, basic staff and family members of the student athletes and coaches of each participating team, as well as a reduced number of fans. During the event, all participants must wear masks and maintain physical distance. Thorough cleaning and disinfection safety measures will be the top priority of all venues.”
From the Sweet 16 to the final four, the capacity of the NCAA Women’s Championship will reach 17%, which includes “all participants, student athletes and coaches’ family members of each participating team, basic staff and reduced fans.”
Who is defending the championship?
After the NCAA decided to cancel the tournament at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, there will be no championships in 2020.
Virginia is the most recent men’s championship champion. This is the Cavaliers’ first championship title.
Baylor is the recent women’s championship champion. The Lady Bears won their third championship in 2019.
