The Florida High School Athletic Association signed a two-year contract extension this week to hold its state football championship games in Orlando’s Florida Citrus Bowl through the 2015 season. The Orlando Sentinel first reported the news.

“The FHSAA is excited to continue holding its football state championships at the Citrus Bowl for 2014 and 2015,” FHSAA spokesman Corey Sobers said in a statement. “Our relationship with the Central Florida Sports Commission, Orange County Schools and the city of Orlando provides our fans, coaches, and student-athletes the opportunity to display their abilities in a venue that has hosted many high-profile events over the years in a first-class manner.”

The state football finals have been held in Orlando since 2007. This year’s championship games will be held on Dec. 5-6 and 12-13.
