Houston selected to host 2024 College Football National Championship Game

On Wednesday, College Football Playoff Executive Director Bill Hancock announced the future sites of four national championship games from 2021-2024. Los Angeles ('23) and Houston ('24) were selected.

Hancock says the playoff did not request formal proposals from cities that had already expressed interest in previous title games.

This will be the community's first national championship game under the College Football Playoff, but its 21st overall.

"The City of Inglewood is excited to be the home of college football's biggest event, the College Football Playoff National Championship in 2023", said Inglewood Mayor James Butts. The new state-of-the-art stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers was the major draw in Los Angeles.




In the past before the playoff era, the national championship was always played either in Miami, New Orleans, Pasadena or Phoenix.

"In the weeks surrounding this major sporting event, countless volunteers will become ambassadors throughout Central Indiana putting "Hoosier Hospitality" on a national stage", Indiana Sports Corp said in a release. He also said that "the new stadium will be spectacular".

This will be the first time in the modern history of the sport its national title has been won at a location outside the South or West, according to our partners at IndyStar. "This was truly a team effort, and we could not have secured this bid without the support of Harris County, the City of Houston, NRG Stadium and Houston First". The committee for deciding the locations had expressed to us that they would really like to see Indianapolis make a bid for the game. The 2018 game will be in Atlanta, 2019 in Santa Clara, Calif., and 2020 in New Orleans.
