According to the Courier Journal and the Lexington Herald Leader, the KHSAA announced Wednesday that the state football finals will be moving to Lexington’s Kroger Field (formerly known as Commonwealth Stadium) beginning this year.

The football finals will also be held at Kroger Field in 2018. They had been at Western Kentucky’s Houchens-LT Smith Stadium since 2009.

In other news, the board of control announced that the girls Sweet 16 will be played at Northern Kentucky University's BB&T Arena in 2018 and at Lexington's Rupp Arena in 2019 and 2020.

The girls Sweet 16 could be moved from Rupp after 2020 if a corporate sponsor isn’t found.
