The South Carolina high school football state championships will be held at one site this year over a span of three days.
On Tuesday, the S.C. High School League’s executive committee approved that Benedict College in Columbia will be the site for all five state championship games. The games will be Dec. 3-5.
Last year, games were held at Spring Valley High School and Benedict College. In previous years, games were at South Carolina’s Williams-Brice Stadium and Benedict College.
In April, the SCHSL executive committee passed a proposal that will change the state championship format from two to three days — and be held at one site.
It will be a reverse rotation in the future to determine which classifications play on which days. This year, Class 4A will be held on Thursday at 7 p.m. The other days and times for championship games will be Class 2A (2 p.m.) and Class 3A (7 p.m.) on Friday. Saturday’s games will be Class A at noon and Class 5A at 5 p.m.
