NCAA keeping FCS title game in Frisco through at least 2020
FRISCO, Texas (AP) The FCS championship game will keep being played at a professional soccer stadium in North Texas through at least 2020.
The NCAA and the city of Frisco announced a four-year extension Friday, the day before the title game is played at the 20,500-seat home of MLS team FC Dallas for the sixth consecutive season.
NCAA officials said the game has averaged more than 19,000 fans the past years seasons in Frisco. They anticipate a possible record crowd Saturday when North Dakota State goes for its fifth consecutive FCS championship against Jacksonville State.
The game was played in Chattanooga, Tennessee, from 1997-2009. Before that, it was in Huntington, West Virginia, from 1992-96 after being played in seven different cities from 1978-91.
