By the time the College Football Playoff wraps up its first decade, its national championship game will have been played at 10 different sites.
The CFP committee on Wednesday announced the sites for the 2021-24 title games, which range from coast to coast but will all be hosting the year-end showcase for the first time.
The 2021 game will be in Miami at Hard Rock Stadium, followed by 2022 in Indianapolis (Lucas Oil Stadium), 2023 in Los Angeles (Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park) and 2024 in Houston (NRG Stadium).
“When we created the playoff, we said we wanted to move the national championship game around,” CFP executive director Bill Hancock said in a release. “We have done that. We call it ‘ten in ten’ — ten different communities will have hosted the national championship game in the first ten years of the playoff. The CFP national championship is one of the most popular sporting events in the United States and we’re proud to bring the game to fans in different regions of the country.”
While Florida, California and Texas already have hosted title games or are scheduled to, the Indianapolis game will mark the first CFP championship to be played in the Midwest.
Upcoming title game sites include Atlanta (2018), Santa Clara, Calif. (2019) and New Orleans (2020).
