It’ll have been 11 years since Seattle has hosted the NCAA men’s basketball tournament in 2015 when the league returns.

The NCAA announced the preliminary round sites on Monday.

The second- and third-round games will be played on March 20-22, 2015 at KeyArena. It’s the first time Seattle has made the list of location sites since 2004.

The Seattle Times reports Seattle lost its chance to hold a Final Four event after the Kingdome was demolished because the NCAA would rather hold the events in a larger venue.

Spokane will host the second and third rounds in 2014, the fourth time that city has held an event since 2003.
