The North Carolina High School Athletic Association is expanding the number of venues it uses for the state championship games.

The NCHSAA announced Thursday that Duke’s Wallace Wade Stadium will host two state championships this year.  The addition of Wallace Wade Stadium now means the state’s eight state title games will be split equally between Duke, the University of North Carolina, North Carolina State in Raleigh and Wake Forest University.

NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker said, “When we were approached by the Triangle Sports Commission about the possibility of playing State Championship Games at the newly renovated Wallace Wade Stadium, we were eager to see if an arrangement could be worked out. After touring the facility and seeing the many upgrades and improvements Duke has made since 2006, the decision to again include Durham and Duke in the championship schedule was an easy one. Knowing the partnership and support available from the Triangle Sports Commission helped solidify that decision!”

The 104th North Carolina state football championships will be played December 9th.
