TEN CITIES SELECTED AS FINALISTS FOR NCAA'S HOME
Published August 7, 1996
The NCAA has named 10 metropolitan areas as finalists for its national offices, which are currently located in Overland Park, KS. Cities to make the final cut include: Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Orlando, Phoenix and San Antonio. Each community has until November 7 to fill out a request for proposal addressing "key criteria" posed by a group appointed by the NCAA Executive Committee. NCAA Exec Dir Cedric Dempsey said the committee will focus on: office space, meeting and conference facilities, opportunities to showcase the Hall of Champions, and ability to host selected championships. A final decision comes in Spring '97. The NCAA's lease on its current site expires in 2000 and notice must be given by November '98 of intention to move (NCAA).
