Texas high school athletics are divided into six classifications, 1A through 6A. Each classification is split into two divisions, based on school enrollment, for the football playoffs.

The five largest classifications play 11-man football, while 1A schools play six-man football.

AT&T Stadium hosted all 11-man championship games from 2011-14 and 2016-17.

The 2015 state championship games were played at Houston's NRG Stadium.
