"Of course, South Florida is a great destination, and the people from the Orange Bowl Committee have always been cordial and welcoming hosts". "Our world-class venues, hotels, restaurants, and citizens are ready to welcome fans from around the country for this premiere sporting event", Mayor Sylvester Turner said.
"In the weeks surrounding this major sporting event, countless volunteers will become ambassadors throughout Central Indiana putting "Hoosier Hospitality" on a national stage", Indiana Sports Corp said in a release.
The new stadium in Southern California that will be the home of the NFL's Rams and Chargers will be the site of the 2023 national title game, followed by NRG Stadium in Houston the next year.
Former director of NCAA Men's Final Four and current College Football Playoff Executive Director Bill Hancock is looking forward to bringing this iconic event to the Hoosier state.
"We just kept asking ourselves, 'Why not go north?'" Hancock says.
This year's national title game will be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Every BCS championship game was held in either Florida, Louisiana, Arizona or California, while the start of the CFP title games have only added Texas and Georgia. The bidding processes likely will return once the 10 in 10 cycle finishes.
