The SCHSL will determine the host site for the games at a later date.

In the past the University of South Carolina’s Brice-Williams Stadium has hosted the 5A, 4A and 3A championship games, while the 2A and A games have been played at Benedict College. Last year during COVID-19, Spring Valley High School and Benedict hosted the championships.
