MONTGOMERY, AL -- The Alabama High School Athletic Association's Central Board of Control announced a new six-year agreement Wednesday that will move the AHSAA Super 6 state football championships to Auburn and Tuscaloosa.

The Final 48 Basketball Championships will remain in Birmingham.

Contract details were not final because details, "are still being worked out," according to Steve Savarese, Executive Director of the AHSAA.

Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa and Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn will rotate turns with the Super 6 Championships through 2014. This year's meet will start in December at Bryant-Denny.

The AHSAA also approved a new six-year agreement to keep the Final 48 State Basketball Tournament in Birmingham at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex Arena. The Final 48 basketball tournament has been in the Magic City since 1994.

"This is exciting news for our schools and our children," Savarese said. "The stadiums at Alabama and Auburn are among the best in the nation. The two cities are committed to making this event even bigger and better than it has been in the past.  In addition, The City of Birmingham is pledging to make the Final 48 tournament for our basketball teams an even more memorable experience for everyone."
