It was announced earlier today that the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship Game will be held in Lucas Oil Stadium, right here in Indianapolis. Los Angeles ('23) and Houston ('24) were selected.

"Each of the four cities chosen met or exceeded our standards for selection", Hancock said. Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis will be the first cold-weather site for the championship in 2022.

Fans of top programs around the country can start adding to their future plans with the college football national championship game locations announced through 2024.

The Los Angeles Host Committee will organize and lead the event and work closely with the College Football Playoff. "This successful bid reaffirms L.A.'s status as one of the most desirable destinations for hosting global sporting events". The stadium also hosted the matchup of Clemson and Oklahoma in the national semifinals in 2015.

"College football is a special game - with America's most gifted players and storied programs lifted up by a fan base devoted like no other", said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Indianapolis is ready to rise to the occasion of making the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship the best yet.

"We just kept asking ourselves, 'Why not go north?'" Hancock says.

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. And Houston is the nation's fourth-largest city and successfully hosted Super Bowl LI earlier this year at NRG Stadium. "We call it "10 in 10" - ten different communities will have hosted the national championship game in the first ten years of the playoff". The bidding processes likely will return once the 10 in 10 cycle finishes.
