ATLANTA -- The College Football Playoff is taking a chapter out of the Super Bowl's playbook.
There will be a halftime show added to the national championship, which will be held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta this upcoming season. An Atlanta Playoff committee spokesperson confirmed the show to 11Alive.
But fans inside the game won't get to see the show.
The halftime show, while described to the Associated Press as a "Super Bowl-style" show, will be a free concert at Centennial Olympic Park. ESPN, who broadcasts the game, will air the show.
Inside the stadium, the schools' marching bands will perform a traditional halftime show. ESPN will air the marching band performances in their mega-cast, according to the AP.
"Traditions are an important part of college football," College Football Playoff Executive Director Bill Hancock said in a statement to the AP on Monday. "This rich culture includes marching bands performing at halftime."
An artist has not been booked yet. But ESPN is working to secure an A-list performer.
