SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A person familiar with the decision says the Pac-12 Conference will announce at a news conference Thursday that it is moving the league championship game to the San Francisco 49ers’ new stadium in Santa Clara.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Wednesday because the official announcement is pending. Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott, 49ers CEO Jed York and team President Paraag Marathe are scheduled to unveil additional details for the conference’s championship game at Levi’s Stadium on Thursday.

Scott said last week that the league was mulling whether to move its championship game to the 68,500-seat, $1.2 billion stadium that opens this year. The first three conference championship games have been held in the stadium of the division champion with the best conference record.
