The countdown is on for the West Virginia S.S.A.C. to decide whether or not the Super 6 State Football Championships will stay in Wheeling.
For the past 22 years Wheeling Island Stadium has been the home for the Super 6, but that could change next week.
The bids have been submitted and according to those responsible, its similar to bidding for a job.
The West Virginia S.S.A.C. will take the sealed bids and decide which city will be the best venue for the tournament.
With hundreds of people involved and hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line, its shaping up to be a very important decision.
Ohio County Commissioner Tim McCormick told 7News, “there were over 10,000 people at Wheeling and its been a long time since we had that many people there and its not all Wheeling folks, obviously. There were a lot of folks from out of town. For the schools from out of town, they stay at the Highlands, they stay in town. They take advantage of all the amenities between Oglebay, the Highlands, the Downs. “
The big decision will come on Monday from Parkersburg.
