NCAA Women's Division I Tournaments
«2014 2016»

The 2015 NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Tournament will be played in March and April 2015, with the Final Four played April 5–7. The subregional games will be played at the campus sites of the top 16 seeds. The regional locations, after a one year experiment allowing tournament teams to host, will return to four neutral sites: Oklahoma City, Spokane, Greensboro and Albany.[1] The subregionals will be played March 20–23, while the regionals will be played March 27–30. This represents a change; in the past, the rounds were played starting on a Saturday and ending on a Tuesday. In 2015, the opening rounds and regionals (but not the Final Four) will be played starting on a Friday and ending on a Monday.[2][3][4] The Final Four will be played at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.[5] Tampa, Florida This is the second time that Tampa has hosted a Women's Final Four Basketball tournament, the prior time was in 2008.

The Regionals, named for the city rather than the region of geographic importance since 2005, will be held from March 28 to March 31 at these sites:[4]

Sacramento was originally selected as one of the regional locations, but a scheduling conflict precluded their ability to host the event, so Spokane was selected as a regional location.[7]
