Downtown Indy has played host to a multitude of big name sporting events this decade, think Super Bowl, men's and women's Big Ten tournaments in both basketball and football, NCAA Tournament regionals as well as both men's and women's NCAA Final Fours.
And the city doesn't plan on stopping anytime soon. They've already lined up more of the same, the Big Ten Football Championship through 2021, Men's Final Four in 2021 and now the College Football Playoff national championship game in 2022.
“I’m confident this event will be much more than a game for our city,” said Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett. “As with other major sporting events, thousands of volunteers will step into our neighborhoods, classrooms, and local nonprofit centers to leave a positive footprint in our community. Hosting this game will also ensure the 78,000 residents in our local hospitality industry will continue to earn a paycheck.”
The top college football teams in the nation will travel to Indy to battle for the National Championship on January 10 at Lucas Oil Stadium.
