(Renton, WA) The WIAA Board decided to stay with the Tacoma Dome for the State Football Finals. There was a question after the Board decided to end all West Side Semi-Final games in the Dome and go to a Regional site like what happens in Eastern Washington. Here is the full text from the WIAA Press Release:
During its January meeting, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) Executive Board voted to remain in the Tacoma Dome for the Gridiron Classic finals.
The agreement with the Tacoma Dome will ensure that the State Football Finals will be played in the State’s largest Dome facility. During its previous Board Meeting, the Executive Board voted to move its westside semifinal contests from the Tacoma Dome to regional sites, similar to the existing format for the eastside semifinals. The agreement with the Tacoma Dome is valid through the fall of 2018.
“The Tacoma Dome is synonymous with State Football and the Board felt it was important to continue that legacy and tradition,” WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese said.
