The College Football Playoff Will Continue To Be Broadcast On ESPN Through The 2031-32 Season

The College Football Playoff will continue to be broadcast on ESPN through the 2031-32 season, according to an agreement between the broadcast network and the CFP.

ESPN will expand its current package for the final two years (through the 2025-26 season), adding all four of the new first-round games each year to ESPN’s existing New Year’s Six (now quarterfinals and semifinals) and the CFP national championship rights in the new 12-team playoff that will launch in the fall.

ESPN also has secured a six-year agreement – beginning in the 2026-27 season – for the CFP, which includes exclusive rights to all rounds of the expanded playoff, as well as continued exclusive rights to all ancillary programming connected to the playoff, such as the CFP Selection Show, weekly Top 25 Rankings Shows and more.

“We are delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with ESPN,” CFP Executive Director Bill Hancock said in a statement. “It’s a significant day for the CFP and for the future of college football. The depth of coverage that ESPN gives to the sport throughout the season is second to none. There is no better platform to showcase this iconic championship as we move into the new 12-team format because ESPN’s people love college football every bit as much as we all do.”
