“Back in the day, you just had a football game and everybody went home,” said Bill Hancock, executive director of the College Football Playoff. “Well, we all learned a long time ago that you need more… Why not touch the community? Why not provide things that fans can go to if they can’t get a ticket to the game?”


The result is 200,000 square feet of hands-on experiences with former coaches, national columnists and legendary athletes like LaDainian Tomlinson. Or as Elon Werner, media coordinator for the experience, described it: “The perfect place to bring your kids to wear them out.”
