Wrapping up a 10-month process, the CFP management committee announced today that Atlanta (2018), Santa Clara (2019) and New Orleans (2020) will all host College Football Championship games.

Nine communities participated in the big process including Atlanta, the Bay Area, Charlotte, Detroit, Houston, Minnesota, New Orleans, San Antonio and South Florida.

"Atlanta, the Bay Area and New Orleans have much to offer and will welcome the participating teams and fans with warm support and exceptional facilities," said Bill Hancock, executive director of the CFP. "We look forward to bringing college football’s showcase event to these three communities.”

These will be the fourth, fifth and sixth national championship games of the College Football Playoff era. Glendale, AZ., will host this season's championship on Jan. 11, 2016. Tampa, Fla., will host next season's championship on Jan. 9, 2017.
