The 2022 Women’s Final Four basketball tournament will be held in Minnesota and the NCAA just released the logo for the tournament.
The last time Minneapolis hosted the women’s tourney was in 1995.
In the article, the NCAA says,
“Designed by Section 127 in Indianapolis, the teal, blue, orange, black and white 2022 Women’s Final Four logo includes several elements inspired by Minnesota’s Northern setting. Included in the compass-shaped design are Polaris (the North Star) and four other stars (representing the four teams competing for the 2022 national championship) and the Stone Arch Bridge, which is a former railroad bridge crossing the Mississippi River at Saint Anthony Falls in downtown Minneapolis. The bridge is a Historic Civil Engineering Landmark and is used as a pedestrian and bicycle bridge. The Mississippi, which has its headwaters in Minnesota, is also a featured element in the logo, and the design also gives a nod to tournament brackets.”
It’s a nice homage to the state and basketball fans will be pumped to have such good basketball featured in the state again.
