The NCAA said it received more than 3,000 bid submissions from member schools, conferences, sports commissions and cities vying to host predetermined rounds for 86 of the NCAA’s 90 championships.

Dates for future men’s lacrosse tournament games have not yet been set. Drexel will serve as host for the NCAA championship games across all three divisions in 2023 and 2024 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, while Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, will host the title games alongside Harvard University in 2025.

This spring, Towson will also host the NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse Championship Weekend at Johnny Unitas Stadium, running May 28-30. Towson is also the site for the 2021 World Lacrosse Women’s World Championship from July 7-17. Johnny Unitas Stadium, which holds up to 11,000 fans, recently received a new FieldTurf Revolution 360 surface, which features Coolplay beads to keep lower temperatures on the playing surface. The sports complex underwent a $32 million renovation over a three-year span.
