Community’s bid to host NCAA Division II football championship ends as game goes to Texas: Rome’s quickly assembled bid to host the displaced NCAA Division II Football Championship in December is over as the planning committee has selected the city of McKinney, Texas, and The Lone Star Conference as the host of 2018 Division II football national championship game. Click here to see our previous story.
The media release continues: “The committee’s recommendation for the game at McKinney Independent School District Stadium and Community Event Center on Dec. 15, was approved by the NCAA Division II Championships Committee on Thursday. The new location for the Division II national championship game opened earlier this year and is a 12,000-seat facility built specifically for football. McKinney was one of several bids that the committee received to host the 2018 championship game after it learned that playing surface renovations would prevent the game from being played in Kansas City. The NCAA Division II football playoffs begin Saturday, Nov. 17.”
