Atlanta to replace Las Vegas for 2025 College Football Playoff title?
The college football playoff national title game locations are currently set through 2026. However, due to a scheduling conflict, Atlanta, which is not currently set to host a title game between 2023 and 26, could end up hosting the 2025 game.
By Brett McMurphy of The Action Networkthe College Football Playoff is negotiating with Atlanta officials to move the 2025 game from Las Vegas to Georgia.
This is the result of a scheduling conflict with the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is also held in Vegas in early January and draws around 200,000 visitors to the city, filling hotel rooms and convention halls. .
“There was a request to move CES a week later, which didn’t happen, and Las Vegas asked CFP to move the title game a week later,” a source said. “But there were no dice either.”
As it stands, the next four play locations are:
January 9, 2023: Los Angeles
January 8, 2024: Houston
January 6, 2025: Las Vegas (maybe Atlanta?)
January 5, 2026: Miami
Should this move take place, Atlanta would join Miami as the only two cities to host two title games during the CFP’s initial 12-year contract.
Atlanta hosted its first national championship in January 2018, a game Georgia fans remember all too well. Alabama beat the Dawgs 26-23 in overtime.
McMurphy noted that Vegas would likely have its turn to host the game in 2027.
Although the next playoff contract has yet to be determined, Las Vegas is the favorite to host the 2027 CFP title game, sources said.
