About the Host Committee

The College Football Playoff (CFP) is a four-team event to determine college football’s national champion on the field. The two winning teams from the Playoff Semifinals compete for the College Football Playoff National Championship. Since its inception in 2015, the national championship game has been played in a different host community each year, selected through a highly competitive bid process. In 2017, Miami was awarded its first CFP National Championship Game. While the Orange Bowl Committee has taken on a leadership role in regard to the 2021 bid and staffing, the Host Committee is a collaborative effort of the entire community, with its Board populated by a diverse group of South Florida leaders.
