MILWAUKEE - Final preparations are underway at the BMO Harris Bradley Center Tuesday in anticipation of tens of thousand of fans for the NCAA tournament.

The tournament will bring big money and lots of attention to Milwaukee, but some say other cities with more modern facilities could stop the NCAA from coming back.
Steve Costello is the President of the Bradley Center. 
"I think it's going to be increasingly difficult to attract this event or like events unless we find a way to replace the arena or do a dramatic renovation or expansion." Costello said.
Costello says a new arena could attract other large high profile events like political conventions and other national sporting events.
Officials expect nearly 50,000 fans to fill the Bradley Center over the next few days.
