In 2022, the title game will head north for the first time in modern history, with the matchup to be played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Now in its fourth season, the CFP had set a goal of placing its marquee event in 10 cities over its first decade.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles game will be held at the future home of the Rams and Chargers in Inglewood, Calif., set to be completed in 2020.

"The CFP National Championship is one of the most popular sporting events in the United States and we're proud to bring the game to fans in different regions of the country", said Hancock in a news release.

"When we were talking about sites, we kept asking ourselves, 'Why not a northern tier city?'" Hancock told USA TODAY Sports. He also said that "the new stadium will be spectacular".
