The Big Ten’s basketball tournaments are coming to Minnesota for the first time.

The conference announced Wednesday the 2023 women’s tournament and the 2024 men’s and women’s tournaments will be held at Target Center in Minneapolis.

“We are thrilled to bring the Big Ten Basketball Tournaments to Minneapolis,” Big Ten Conference Commissioner Kevin Warren said in a statement. “Minneapolis has a strong history of hosting exceptional events such as the recent NCAA Women’s Final Four, and also features world-class venues and an outstanding base of Big Ten alumni and fans. We look forward to creating new memories and experiences for our student-athletes, coaches and member institutions, further expanding our fanbase, cultivating relationships with the business community, and fostering a positive and lasting impact on the Twin Cities.”

Next year’s women’s basketball tournament in Minnesota will be the first time the event will not be held in Indianapolis since 2015. Next year’s men’s tournament will be at United Center in Chicago, one of the four cities to host, along with Indianapolis, Washington D.C., and New York City.
