“The College Football Playoff Championship Game is a tremendous event, one that will continue to grow in the coming years. After analyzing the event and discussions with local partners, Indianapolis will not bid on the event during the current bid cycle. The upcoming schedule of sporting events and conventions for Indianapolis is extremely aggressive and exciting.

Our community looks forward to being considered for the CFP Championship Game during a future bid cycle.”
