Where is the College Football Playoff national championship game in 2023?

Quick Bit: The Sporting News details the site of the 2023 CFP championship game, SoFi Stadium.

Full Story:

One way or another, history will be made in Tinseltown on Monday night.

The 2023 College Football Playoff title game is set to be a star-filled affair, and for more reasons than one. Not only is the game hosting a number of college football’s greatest talents, including Stetson Bennett, Jalen Carter and Max Duggan. But it also will pits two sides on the opposite ends of the college football totem pole.

No. 1 Georgia has a chance to become the first in CFP history to win back-to-back national championships. No. 3 TCU, meanwhile, could capture its first-ever win in a title game — the Horned Frogs claim two national championships, but they came decades before a national title game was implemented.

It’s a showdown befitting of a major studio production, as close to a David vs. Goliath matchup you can have in the postseason. So what better place to have it than in Hollywood?

Where is the College Football Playoff championship game in 2023?

Location: SoFi Stadium (Inglewood, California)
Matchup: No. 1 Georgia vs. No. 3 TCU

A year after hosting the Super Bowl, SoFi Stadium will serve as the site of this year’s national championship. The site is well-stocked to support the event; it hosts the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams and Chargers, after all. However, this represents one of three bowl games held at the ground; the Jimmy Kimmel Bowl, named after the famed talk show host, also takes place at SoFi.
