College Football Playoff announces championship sites for 2020-23 seasons

Miami-South Florida will host in 2021, Indianapolis in 2022 and Houston in 2024.

Each will be first-time hosts for the CFP championship game and represents a trend of moving the lucrative title game to different sites.

LASEC's successful bid to host the CFP focused on utilizing the tremendous venues and assets of Los Angeles - diversity, creativity, entertainment - and the destination's storied history of hosting the world's biggest sporting events including the Olympics, World Cup, Super Bowls, All-Star Weekends and more.

CFP Executive Director Bill Hancock said the goal was to play the first 10 CFP title games in different locations.

Lucas Oil Stadium and NRG Stadium also have hosted NCAA men's basketball Final Fours.

The playoff will be held in Miami in 2021, Indianapolis in 2022, Los Angeles (Inglewood) in 2023 and Houston in 2024.

The four sites were determined by the College Football Playoff's Management Committee.

Inglewood Mayor James Butts said his city would partner with Los Angeles in coordinating related events around the championship in January 2023.

"Each of the four cities chosen met or exceeded our standards for selection", Hancock said. "Each city also has wonderful, supportive people who we rely on to host a successful game". The committee for deciding the locations had expressed to us that they would really like to see Indianapolis make a bid for the game.

Atlanta's new Mercedes-Benz Stadium will host the game this year before it goes to Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, CA, next year and to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans in 2020.

The 2021 College Football Playoff National Championship will be the seventh under the College Football Playoff which began with the 2015 game in Arlington, Tex.
