The brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, is host to the 2017-18 College Football Championship game. The game will take place on Monday, January 8, 2018. The Mercedes-Benz Stadium is home to the Atlanta Falcons and just opened in 2017.
This year's College Football Playoff National Championship Game will pit the winner of the Rose Bowl against the winner of the Sugar Bowl. The winner of the Championship Game will be declared the best team in college football for the 2017-18 season.
Last year, the College Football Championship game was held in Tampa Bay, Florida, at Raymond James Stadium. The game was an absolute thriller with Clemson beating Alabama. It was considered a big upset for the national champion Clemson Tigers. Alabama and Clemson are both in the mix again this year, and are facing off in the Sugar Bowl for the chance to play in the National Championship again. Their opponent will be either the Georgia Bulldogs or the Oklahoma Sooners, who will be matched up in the Rose Bowl.
The Atlanta Football Host Committee will have downtown Atlanta ready for college football’s biggest game with a wide range of fan activities happening throughout the city.
