The NCAA awarded St. Louis eight championship events between 2015-18 -- including Division I wrestling in 2015 and Division I women's gymnastics in 2017-18 -- but none to Pittsburgh, which was a finalist for women's volleyball, hockey and men's basketball.

Bids by the St. Louis Sports Commission in collaboration with schools and venues also landed women's bowling in 2015 and 2018, women's Frozen Four hockey in 2017 and Division II wrestling in 2015.

Madison Square Garden will host the 2016 Division I wrestling championships -- the iconic arena's first NCAA title event since the 1950 Final Four.

Chicago's United Center gets the 2017 men's Frozen Four, a first for the Blackhawks' home arena. The University of Oregon will host Division I outdoor track and field championships from 2015-2021, and all three NCAA divisions will compete for field hockey titles at Louisville in 2017.

The Division III football championship game will stay four more years in Salem, Va.
