SoFi Stadium in California and NRG Stadium in Texas will host the college football national title game in 2023 and 2024. But today we learned which venues will host the two national title games after that.
Stadium college football expert Brett McMurphy reported Monday that Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta and Hard Rock Stadium in Miami will host the 2025 and 2026 national title games, respectively. Las Vegas was originally supposed to host the 2025 title game, but Atlanta was a late replacement.
Mercedes-Benz Stadium previously hosted the national title game in 2018. Hard Rock Stadium hosted the game in 2021.
Some college fans are curious as to which event could have created a “scheduling conflict” that would lead to Las Vegas dropping out of the competition. Others believe Miami deserves the chance to host so quickly given that COVID-19 affected attendance for the one they hosted in 2021.
Of the eight national title games since the start of the College Football Playoff, five have been played in the Southeast through Texas.
The other three games were played in Indianapolis, Santa Clara and Glendale.
To date, there has not been a national title game hosted in either the Northwest or the Northeast. Although considering the temperatures in this part of the country it’s time for the national title, that won’t change in the near future.
