The College Football Playoff announced the four sites for the National Championship from 2021-2024 on Wednesday afternoon. And in 2024, college football’s biggest game will be making its way back to the Lone Star State.

Houston will host the 2024 title game at NRG Stadium as announced on Wednesday by Executive Director of the College Football Playoff Bill Hancock. Three other sites for the title game were announced on Wednesday: 2021 in Miami, 2022 in Indianapolis and 2023 in Los Angeles at the new stadium in Hollywood Park that is under construction.

“When we created the playoff, we said we wanted to move the national championship game around,” Hancock said in a press 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.”

It will be the first time that Houston will host the college football national championship will be hosted in Texas since the first CFP National Championship game hosted at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. Ohio State defeated Oregon 42-20 in that game.

The first CFP rankings were released last night. The 2018 title game will be held on January 8 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
