WIAA moves state football championships out of Tacoma Dome
The WIAA has announced three sites for state high school football championships this season, all in Pierce County, but NOT in the Tacoma Dome…
Mount Tahoma Stadium in Tacoma will host the Class 1B and 4A championships.
Sparks Stadium in Puyallup will host the 3A and 2A title games.
And the Harry E Lang Stadium in Lakewood will host the 1A and 2B Championships. The games will all be played on Saturday, December 7th with the first games kicking off at Noon and second games at 4pm.
The WIAA executive board voted in June not to renew its contract with the Tacoma Dome as the host site for six football state championships, citing fan experience and rising cost of using the Dome as primary reasons behind the decision.
The three stadiums in the Tacoma area are all within 13-miles of each other, with a ticket purchased at one site good for all three so fans can take in multiple games.
