Super Bowl Host Cities: Which City Has Hosted the Most Super Bowls in NFL History?

    Who are the host cities in Super Bowl history, and which city has hosted the biggest game in the NFL season the most?

    Super Bowl 57 saw the NFL head back to Phoenix, Arizona, for a fourth trip to the city. While hosting four Super Bowls is an impressive feat, it somehow falls short of topping the list in terms of which city has hosted the most Super Bowls. Let’s take a look at which city or cities hold the record for hosting the Super Bowl the most, and which other cities have also had the honor.

    Which City Has Hosted the Most Super Bowls?

    Miami has hosted more Super Bowls than any other city, with 11. Six of those have been hosted at what is now called Hard Rock Stadium, with the now-demolished Orange Bowl hosting the other five. The last Super Bowl to be hosted in Miami was in 2020, when the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20.

    However, Miami’s spot alone atop the list will only last for a couple more years. New Orleans is set to join Miami on 11 Super Bowls when it hosts the 2025 Super Bowl. That will see the Superdome host its eighth Super Bowl, further extending that stadium’s lead over Hard Rock Stadium in second place. The other three Super Bowls to be hosted in New Orleans were in the now-demolished Tulane Stadium.

    With the 2026 Super Bowl rumored to be heading to San Francisco, it will be the third time the San Francisco Bay Area has hosted the event. That will see the area tied for sixth, alongside San Diego, Houston, and Atlanta. The last Super Bowl to be hosted in San Francisco came in 2016.

    In Super Bowl 50, Peyton Manning clinched his second ring as the Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10. After waiting more than 30 years between their last two Super Bowls, San Francisco looks set to wait just 10 years this time.

    In 2022, when Los Angeles hosted their eighth Super Bowl, it crawled up to third on this list. The first two games LA hosted were held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Rose Bowl in Pasadena then hosted five games, followed by last year at SoFi Stadium.

    Phoenix is currently in fourth place on the all-time Super Bowl cities list. The first time they held the big game was back in 1996 at Sun Devil Stadium. Twelve years later, State Farm Stadium welcomed the Super Bowl in 2008 and then again in 2015.

    In terms of the state to host the Super Bowl the most, Florida leads with 17. That includes the 11 in the Miami area, while five have been hosted in Tampa and one in Jacksonville. California hosted the Super Bowl for the 13th time in 2022 and will move up to 14 if the 2026 event does indeed head to San Francisco. That is the second-most appearances, just ahead of Louisiana, which is currently at 10 but will climb to 11 in 2025.
