According to a report from Action Network’s Brett McMurphy, Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, will host the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in 2027.

“Supposedly, nothing is ever a ‘lock,’ but Las Vegas is a ‘lock’ to host the 2027 game,” a source told McMurphy. “It is a done deal. The College Football Playoff has been wanting to get to Vegas for years. We’ll finally get our wish.”

McMurphy also reported that New Orleans, Dallas, and Miami are in negotiations to host the title games from 2028-30, respectively.

 

While it has yet to be determined whether it will be 12 or 14 teams, the expanded College Football Playoff will need several years to plan ahead for host cities, with New Orleans, Dallas, and Miami being selected by the CFP several months ago as its preferred sites between 2027-30, sources told McMurphy.

This year’s National Championship Game will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, after McMurphy says that Las Vegas was unable to accommodate the CFP in early January due to preexisiting conflicts.

“Three years ago, the CFP originally sought Las Vegas to host the 2025 CFP title game on Jan. 5,” McMurphy writes. “However, Las Vegas and the CFP couldn’t resolve a conflict with the annual Consumer Electronics Show, which is also held in early January. The CES, which brings nearly 200,000 visitors to Las Vegas, requires thousands of hotel rooms and convention room space.

“Atlanta was chosen as a late replacement. Because the CFP expanded the playoff from four teams to 12 teams this season, this year’s title game in Atlanta was moved back two weeks to Jan. 20, 2025.”
