NCAA to help cover travel expenses for families of players in Final Four


The NCAA announced on Tuesday that a waiver has been passed allowing financial help to cover travel expenses for the families of players participating in the Men’s and Women’s Final Four this spring.

The NCAA will cover $3,000 in travel, hotel and meal expenses for the families of players that make it to the final weekend of the season, and an extra $1,000 will be provided for the families of the players that advance to the national title game.

“Championship experiences like the Final Four create memories of a lifetime for student-athletes, and we want to make sure their families are there to support and celebrate with them,” said NCAA President Mark Emmert.

Travel will also be provided for players participating in the college football playoff.
