It was announced earlier today that the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship Game will be held in Lucas Oil Stadium, right here in Indianapolis. According to the IndyStar, it will be the first time in modern sports history that a national title will be won outside of the South or West.

 Indianapolis has hosted the Big Ten Football Championship Game since 2011.

We’re joined by Chris Gahl of “Visit Indy” to talk about the major announcement and how Indy snagged the big event. 

 

"We expect it to generate over 150 million dollars in economic impact.... The committee for deciding the locations had expressed to us that they would really like to see Indianapolis make a bid for the game... Usually it's the other way around, but with our proven track record of putting on events, they came to us. In six weeks we quickly put together a bid and today we found out that we had won it."
