1. If the side is not on the property of the school submitting the proposal, then a letter from the governing agency of the site verifying availability must be submitted to the CIF.
2. Submission of a proposal to host implies that your school will operate and staff the venue, or has arranged for operation and staffing of the venue, according to the positions and costs listed on the Proposal to Host Form. The CIF will contact you to verify all expenses and make possible adjustments.
3. The following are seating guidelines for each division. Schools are encouraged submit a proposal even if they do not meet these guidelines as some regional bowl game match-ups may allow for a smaller venue. Also, schools are encouraged to submit more than one proposal if an off-site venue would allow for more seating as certain match-ups may require the CIF to move the game to a larger stadium.

Divisions 2-AA; 2-A: 2,500+
Divisions 3-AA; 3-A: 2,000+
