U.S. Bank Stadium will not host the 2020 College Football Playoff national championship game.

Atlanta, Santa Clara, California, and New Orleans have been selected to host from a group of nine cities/regions that were vying for the event.

Atlanta will be the site of the championship game scheduled for January 2018. Santa Clara will host the January 2019 title game. New Orleans will be the site of the January 2020 College Football Playoff championship game.

Each of the first six championship games will be held in different states.

This season’s championship game will be held Jan. 11 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, which is also the site of the Fiesta Bowl. Next season’s championship game will be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
