The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics National Football Championship is decided by a post-season playoff system featuring the best NAIA college football teams in the United Statesmarker. Under sponsorship of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, the championship game has been played annually since 1956. In 1970, NAIA football was divided into two divisions, Division I and Division II, with a championship game played in each division. In 1997, NAIA football was again consolidated into one division. The game is played in Rome, Georgiamarker at Barron Stadium.
