Indianapolis to host the College Football Playoff National Championship in 2022

College Football Playoff Rankings Majority of Playoff Teams Don't Start in the Top 4

"Houston is one of the most venue-rich cities in the country with a great, modern stadium, multiple convention centers/arenas and a downtown park that will make for a terrific festival setting for our attendees", Bill Hancock, executive director of the CFP, said.

The announcement came Wednesday, with three other cities also getting the title game in coming years.

The 2022 game in Indianapolis will be the first time that college football's national champion will be decided at a location outside the South or the West.

"Between the community events, fan experiences, and the game itself, the College Football Playoff National Championship will bring more than 100,000 visitors to Indy in 2022", said Leonard Hoops, president and CEO of Visit Indy.

Indianapolis will be the first city from the Midwest to host the event.

"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. The stadium also hosted the matchup of Clemson and Oklahoma in the national semifinals in 2015.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles game will be held at the future home of the Rams and Chargers in Inglewood, Calif., set to be completed in 2020.

Indianapolis is ready to rise to the occasion of making the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship the best yet. "We have done that." said Hancock.

This will be the first time the College Football Playoff National Championship is played in the Los Angeles region.

There is no bidding process to host a CFP title game. And Houston is the nation's fourth-largest city and successfully hosted Super Bowl LI earlier this year at NRG Stadium.
