Bragg Memorial Stadium to host all FHSAA football championship games in 2023
The stadium will host the games this December
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - High school football state champions will be crowned in Tallahassee this December, as the Florida High School Athletic Association announced that all nine state title games will be played at Florida A&M’s Bragg Memorial Stadium Thursday morning.
Visit Tallahassee confirmed the games Thursday at a press conference, which will be held over a three-day period in December, with three games being played each day.
The FHSAA has held state championship games at multiple locations since 2019, with Tallahassee’s Gene Cox Stadium serving as one of the sites. All championship games were played at Florida State’s Doak Campbell Stadium in 2020 due to COVID safety concerns.
Leon County Commissioner Nick Maddox said that the championship games will draw in $11 million in revenue for the county. Maddox also mentioned at the press conference that the deal was not yet finalized as of Thursday and that his fellow commissioners have assured him that the final vote will go through in October.
Bragg Memorial last hosted a state championship game in 1978.
