The College Football Playoff is headed back to a familiar site for an upcoming National Championship game. The CFP announced Tuesday that Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium will host the Jan. 6, 2025 title game, crowning the 2024 season’s national champion.

“We are excited to return the College Football Playoff National Championship to Atlanta,” Executive Director of the CFP Bill Hancock said in a release. “When the playoff was created, the goal was to move the national championship game to ten different communities in the first ten years of the playoff. After visiting ten different communities during our first ten years of existence, we accomplished our goal of sharing this celebration of college football with the entire country.

“Bringing the game back to Atlanta was a simple decision when we looked at everything. One of our greatest title games took place in Atlanta in 2018, and the city could not have been a better host. A state-of-the-art stadium, a walkable downtown with venues to host all the activities surrounding national championship weekend and great people made Atlanta an obvious choice to be the first city to host a second title game.”

Atlanta hosted a memorable CFP title game in 2018 when Alabama defeated Georgia 26-23 on a walk-off touchdown in overtime. The next game (2023) is set to be played at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. Houston’s NRG Stadium will host in 2024 while the 2026 game will be played at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.
