The CIAA football championship game is open for bid.


Proposals for the title game will be taken by the league office through May 17 and a question and answer session with CIAA officials will be held on April 23.


Institutions and/or cities interested in bidding must submit a proposal by May 17 and include a CIAA member as the host school.


“CIAA football regular season games and the championship both have experienced tremendous growth over the past few years much of what can be attributed to the progression of our football programs and championship game attendance,” league Commissioner Jacqie Carpenter said in a statement.  “As the conference continues to make great strides, now is the perfect time to explore potential sites for our championship game while providing our members institutions opportunities to serve as hosts.”


The title game has been held in Durham in recent years, but Winston-Salem State has expressed interest in hosting at Bowman Gray Stadium. Charlotte and Durham are also considered contenders.
