Destination South Is Ready To Plan Your Atlanta Championship Game Event!

I can’t say that I have ever been to a championship game, but Florida State did win the 2013 National Championship for College Football and I remember that day so well!  I was with all my friends back home grilling out and watching on an outdoor screen. We played ole Auburn Tigers and it was a nail biter! Auburn was up 31-27 with less than a minute left. 13 secs left Jamis Winston threw the winning touchdown, but it wasn’t over yet! Auburn is known to have the luckiest plays with less than 5 secs left in a game, so we knew we hadn’t fully won! After a few split-second heart attacks, the time ran out for the Tigers and we WON!”
Football memory shared by Jamie Lea Shiver, Destination South’s Operations Manager


In just a few short months Atlanta will be the stage for the College Football Playoff National Championship – meaning, Atlanta is going to be the place to be! On January 8th, 2018 the College Football Playoffs will be played at Atlanta’s new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Your average back yard bbq is not going to be enough to show the true spirit of this once in a life time event.

If your company is planning to host an event during the playoffs, an average get together just won’t do. We’re ready with ideas and extras to make your Championship Playoffs party one that rivals all the other events you have ever hosted. Our team can create parties that are unique, fun, and sure to stick with the minds of your guests forever. From indoor to outdoor venues to street party or park locations, our team has creative ideas that will turn your game day event into one that will never be forgotten. Destination South Meetings + Events is nationally recognized in our field, and we’ve been part of many award-winning events (many of those based in Atlanta, Georgia). We’re experienced with location selection, food and beverage planning, design and décor, entertainment, audio/visual production, and more. Are you looking for a killer sound system, a bar that is as amazing as an amazing sports bar, or decorations that make it look like you are in a private box at the stadium? We have what it takes. Just like the Atlanta Football Host Committee’s campaign states, we’re  ‘All In‘ to take care of the heavy lifting of event planning so you don’t have to.

There’s no better time than now to connect with us and start planning your Atlanta Championship Game event. Planning now gives us that chance to invite you to the drawing board so that we can plan the perfect event. Remember, this is not just a football game, this is a championship!

About The College Football Playoff National Championship
The College Football Playoff preserves the excitement and significance of college football’s unique regular season where every game counts. The kickoff of the new year belongs to college football, with two semifinal games rotating annually among the Cotton Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl, Peach Bowl, Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl.

The two teams winning the playoff semifinals compete for the College Football Playoff National Championship. That game is in a different city each year, always on a Monday night. Every FBS team has equal access to the College Football Playoff based on its performance. No team automatically qualifies.

University presidents and chancellors from all 10 FBS conferences and Notre Dame serve on the College Football Playoff Board of Managers and govern the administrative operations, with commissioners (the management committee) managing the event. A small staff in the playoff office in Irving, Texas, carries out the day-to-day responsibilities. A talented group of high-integrity individuals with experience as coaches, student-athletes, college administrators and journalists, along with sitting athletics directors, comprise the selection committee. Members of the 2017-2018 committee are: Kirby Hocutt (chair), Barry Alvarez, Jeff Bower, Herb Deromedi, Tom Jernstedt, Bobby Johnson, Jeff Long, Rob Mullens, Dan Radakovich, Condoleezza Rice, Steve Wieberg and Tyrone Willingham.
