HOUSTON, TX - Even though the NCAA Final Four teams aren't set just yet, preparations are underway to get NRG Stadium ready for the big event.

"The court installation itself is only a couple of hours, so that's not the hardest part," Doug Hall, president of the Houston Final Four Organizing Committee said.  "The seating, riser system is much more intense."

The stadium will hold 75,000 seats for the Final Four.  On Friday, crews continued bringing in the seats, while laying down the wood for the 70 foot by 140 foot floor.

"It's maple flooring. It's actually made from the same trees maple syrup comes from," Bruce Haroldson from Connor Sports said.

Even if you don't have a ticket to the games, there will be plenty of other Final Four activities going on in Houston next week.  For more information, click here.
