The KHSAA state football finals are moving to Kroger Field!
Beginning as immediate as this fall, Kroger Field will play host to the KHSAA football finals for the upcoming 2017 season. The finals will then return in 2018, as approved by the board of Control and announced Wednesday.
Mitch Barnhart expressed interest in one day hosting the state’s championship games soon after the Commonwealth Stadium’s renovations were completed last year. It didn’t take long for him to get his wish.
The finals had previously been played in Bowling Green at Western Kentucky’s Houchens Industries—L. T. Smith Stadium at Jimmy Feix Field (and you thought Kroger Field was a bad name) since way back in 2009.
