We still don’t know if there will be a season or if things will be delayed when November rolls around, but we do have a new logo for the men’s 2021 Final Four. The NCAA Final Four Twitter account (@FinalFour) tweeted out the logos for the Division I, II, and III NCAA men’s tournaments, and they’re pretty good:

The 2021 Final Four will take place at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, with the semifinals on April 3 and the finals on April 5. It’s a relatively simple logo, playing on the bracket imagery and including a basketball and the top of the NCAA trophy.
Here’s a better look at the Division I logo:
With the cancellation of the 2020 tournament, we lost Atlanta as a Final Four destination. Final Four sites are determined all the way out to 2026, with New Orleans (2022), Houston (2023), Phoenix (2024), San Antonio (2025), and Indianapolis (2026) set to host.
The 2021 tournament is scheduled to begin March 16 and 17 with the First Four games in Dayton. San Jose, Boise, Wichita, Dallas, Detroit, Lexington, Raleigh, and Providence are set to host the first and second round games March 18-21. Minneapolis — home of Virginia’s 2019 National Championship win — will host the Midwest regional, with Brooklyn (East), Memphis (South), and Denver (West) hosting the other three regions March 25-28.
Schools get to keep the center-court logo of Final Fours they win (along with the whole court to commemorate the event and also to sell), with Virginia hanging theirs in the entry lobby at John Paul Jones Arena:
