NCAA unveils 2017 Final Four logo
The 2017 NCAA Women’s Final Four logo was unveiled during a celebration prior to the Dallas Regional semifinal games being played at American Airlines Center. In 2017, Dallas will host the Women’s Final Four for the first time, with the national semifinal games set for Friday, March 31, and the national championship to be decided April 2.
American Airlines Center, which has previously held NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championships regional play in 2011 and 2016, will be the site for the crowning of the 36th NCAA national champion in women’s basketball.
“There is much anticipation from our teams, fans and stakeholders in having the Women’s Final Four in Dallas in 2017,” said Anucha Browne, NCAA vice president, women’s basketball championships. “We look forward to working with the Big 12 Conference, Dallas Sports Commission, Dallas Local Organizing Committee and American Airlines Center in creating a memorable experience for all involved, as we know Dallas will be a great host for the Women’s Final Four.”
The logo for the 2017 Women’s Final Four was inspired by the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau – “DALLAS, BIG THINGS HAPPEN HERE” – brand. Designed by Joe Bosack and Co., the green, blue, black and white Women’s Final Four logo features the impressive Dallas skyline juxtaposed around the NCAA national championship trophy. Dallas’ strong heritage of iconic athletes and teams, events and energy will be the backdrop when America’s marquee women’s sporting event comes to town next March.
