IBJ Podcast: What must Indy do to be ready to host all of March Madness?


The NCAA made it official last week: Indianapolis will host the entire March Madness men’s basketball tournament this spring.

That’s every team. Every game. With the goal of creating a coronavirus-free zone for players, team staffs, officials and a few hundred family members who will be allowed to attend each game.

The logistics needed to pull this off are incredible. But Indianapolis officials tell IBJ reporter Mickey Shuey they are up to the task. So podcast host Mason King talks with Shuey about what he’s learned and what’s left to figure out.

To learn more, check out Mickey’s story about the city’s plans for the tournament here.
