Sacramento will play host to several NCAA postseason events over the next few years, the NCAA announced on Wednesday.

The city will host an NCAA women’s basketball regional at Sleep Train Arena in 2015, a men’s and women’s cross country regional at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in 2016 and an outdoor track and field regional at Sacramento State's Hornet Stadium in 2018, according to a list of championship sites for the 2014-18 seasons released by the NCAA.

Sacramento State and the Sacramento Sports Commission are listed as co-hosts for the events.

The women’s basketball regional will be played at Sleep Train Arena from March 28-31, 2015. The arena last served as a regional host for the women’s tournament in 2010.

Haggin Oaks, which hosted the NCAA cross country West Regional in November, will be the site of the competition Nov. 11, 2016.

The 2018 track and field regional at Hornet Stadium will take place May 24-26. It was recently announced that Sacramento State also will host the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in 2014.

The NCAA also announced the Division I and II rowing championships in 2015 and 2016 will be at the Sacramento State Aquatic Center/Gold River, hosted by the Pacific-12 Conference.
