Texas high school football championship games to remain at AT&T Stadium for '18, '19

The UIL Texas high school football state championships will stay at AT&T Stadium for at least two more seasons.

The stadium has hosted all the eleven-man UIL championship games since 2011 except for one year in 2015 and all the six-man games since 2016.

It wasn’t a given the games would stay in North Texas. NRG Stadium in Houston and the Alamodome in San Antonio were in the running to host the title games.

"We are pleased to bring the UIL Football State Championships back to AT&T Stadium for another two years," UIL Executive Director Charles Breithaupt said in a statement. "The UIL is excited to showcase the best high school football in Texas during this unique championship experience."

The 2018 six and eleven-man championship games will happen Dec. 19 - 22.

Dates for the 2019 games have not yet been announced.
