Division II championship game leaving Alabama
December 11, 2013
FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) - The Division II football championship game is leaving Alabama after 28 years.
The NCAA announced Wednesday that the game will move to Kansas City, Kan., starting next season.
Florence has hosted the championship game since 1985 with the last set for Dec. 21.
It is the second-longest continuous period for any NCAA championship venue, behind the College World Series in Omaha, Neb.
Kansas City will host the games from 2014-17.
The championship had been played in five different locations under four bowl names in its first 13 years. It was renamed the NCAA Division II Football Championship Game when Florence won the bidding to host.
