Perhaps you've forgotten with the last two NCAA men's basketball tournaments altered heavily by COVID-19, but Fiserv Forum remains scheduled to be a host for the first two rounds of the 2022 tournament in March.

Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m CDT Saturday for the rounds, scheduled for March 18 and 20, at ncaatickets.com/championship/march-madness. The suite of games will feature four first-round games and two second-round clashes. Tickets can be purchased for one of three two-game sessions, including a morning and afternoon option March 18.

Fiserv Forum hasn't hosted NCAA Tournament games before but already has been tapped to host future first- and second-round games in 2025, as well.

This season's games will be the first hosted in Milwaukee since 2017 at the now-demolished BMO Harris Bradley Center. Among the games hosted that year was 12th-seeded Middle Tennessee upsetting No. 5 Minnesota, 81-72, one year after the Blue Raiders program shocked Michigan State in the first round as a 15th seed.

Three years before that, the Bradley Center hosted one of its greatest games, a furious rally by Wisconsin over Oregon in the second round, an 85-77 win that helped the Badgers advance to the Final Four.

The Bradley Center hosted tournament games in 1992 (the year of the "Miracle in Milwaukee"), 1996, 1999, 2004, 2010, 2014 and 2017. The MECCA hosted games in 1984.
