PHOENIX — The NCAA Men’s Final Four Tournament is coming to Phoenix in 2024, but you can get in on the fun early, and across the state!

On Wednesday, the Fan Jam is launching on ASU’s Tempe campus. Phoenix Final Four Host Committee President and CEO Jay Parry joined Today in AZ live in studio to preview what you can check out.

The Fan Jam is a series of free, interactive pop-up events which features the Jam Van. Parry shared this will be celebration leading all the way up until the tournament on April 6 and 8, 2024.

“Tomorrow (Wednesday) we are unveiling the Jam Van, and the Jam Van is a mobile pop-up unit that brings basketball all around the state of Arizona,” shared Parry.

At the Jam Van, you can take a selfie with the NCAA Championship trophy, you can practice your shooting skills and there will be fun giveaways connected to the tournament.

“We're going to unveil it at ASU, which is perfect location because they are the host institution and they're so important to hosting the Final Four,” said Parry.

The games next April will be played in Glendale at State Farm Stadium, and Parry said the excitement is stretching out across all of State 48.

“It's intended to be a community event, and there's so many activities here in Phoenix and in Glendale and in Scottsdale, but our goal is to also go around the state, right, so down to Tucson, up to Flagstaff and just make sure everyone can be a part of this basketball celebration,” Parry said. “It is a point of pride for us,” she added.
