(WVUE) -

After two years of games, the 'Shrine on Airline' will not host high school football in 2018. 

John Curtis High School released their 2018 football schedule today, and announced they would no longer play at the home of the New Orleans Baby Cakes.

"This year, the Patriots were unable to play home games at the Shrine on Airline as the New Orleans Baby Cakes management didn’t see it financially feasible to play football at their stadium this season, so adjustments had to be made," the school said in a release.

Curtis wanted to schedule three home games at the stadium, and Jesuit was going to use the facility for one game. Four home games didn't make financial sense to the Baby Cakes. Curtis will play their home games at Yulman Stadium in 2018.

The 'Shrine' hosted double that amount of games in 2017.

FOX 8 Sports reached out to the Baby Cakes organization, we're still awaiting comment.
