About the Championships & Tent City

It’s finally here! We’re ready to welcome you to Champaign County and Memorial Stadium for the 2022 IHSA State Football Championships.

One of the great traditions of the IHSA state finals is the popular Tent City, hosted by the Visit Champaign County. Tent City opens at 7:00 a.m. and features a tent for each individual school to host a pre-game and post-game tailgate party. Be sure to decorate your tent to show your school spirit! Please remember, no alcohol is permitted in any area of Tent City per IHSA rules.  

Tent City will be located directly West of Memorial Stadium, in between First & Oak St., with parking available for free directly north of the tents or in lot E14.
