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.
