The San Francisco 49ers will bid to hose the College Football Playoff national championship game at Levi’s Stadium.
The first ever College Football Playoff took place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas in January. With the advent of the new four team playoff, and semi-final games being played at the traditional BCS bowl games, it opens up the door for other cities and stadiums to host the title game.
Certainly the national championship game is a big event with a lot of fanfare and a boost to the local economy. The San Francisco 49ers are looking to bid for the championship game according to a report from the Associated Press.
"The San Francisco 49ers will bid to host the college football playoff championship game at Levi’s Stadium.A person with knowledge of the plans told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the team will seek to host either the 2018, ’19 or ’20 title game when they come up for bid later this year."
Unlike AT&T Stadium in Texas, Levi’s Stadium is an open air venue which presents some concerns about weather. Of course with other stadiums like MetLife Stadium in New Jersey contending for the same title games, Levi’s Stadium seems like an obvious choice.
MetLife Stadium did host Super Bowl 48 between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos and it looked like it was a rather uneventful game despite a few weather scares.
