The LHSAA sent its member schools a memo Monday saying that it was looking for alternative sites for this year's Prep Classic.

The letter says the annual football championships are “in jeopardy” of not being played at the home of the New Orleans Saints, where all nine championships are scheduled this year.

The move comes as the city of New Orleans continues limit the number of fans that can attend games a the Superdome.

The LHSAA says it is looking for a site that can host fans at 25-percent capacity from December 26-31.

Last year Cajun Field and Yulman Stadium both held championships as select schools hosted their own championships instead of playing at the Superdome
