Super Bowl Locations: Host cities and stadiums for Super Bowl 2023 and beyond

Each Super Bowl location is set years in advance. This gives teams, fans, and most of all, cities, years to prepare for the influx of tourists who’ll be visiting during that week. Prior to the Super Bowl 56 kicking off, we already know who’ll be hosting all the way through Super Bowl 59 in 2025.

Future Super Bowl locations

Super Bowl LVI 2022: SoFi Stadium, Los Angeles, California

The newly built SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA, was originally the location of Super Bowl LV this season. However, the NFL requires a stadium to be open for two years before it can host the big game.

Various construction delays caused by many factors, however, pushed back the stadium’s opening until September 8, 2020 — just one week ahead of the Rams’ Sunday Night showdown with the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 of the season. This will be the eighth time the Los Angeles metropolitan area hosts the Super Bowl’s festivities. Yet, it will be the first since 1993.

Super Bowl LVII 2023: State Farm Stadium, Phoenix/Glendale, Arizona

The Super Bowl will return to the desert for the fourth time when Arizona hosts Super Bowl 57. State Farm Stadium sees the big game’s action for the third time. The last time Arizona hosted, fans watched the New England Patriots defeat the Seattle Seahawks with a thrilling Malcolm Butler interception in the fourth quarter’s waning seconds in 2015.

In their pitch to bring the game back, Glendale and Phoenix’s cities highlighted many upgraded features surrounding the stadium. They included a $5.7 billion, 20-year plan with significant renovations to the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Super Bowl LVIII 2024: Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas, Nevada

The Mercedez-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, originally held hosting rights the Super Bowl in 2024. However, with the NFL moving to a 17-game regular season next year, the Super Bowl date moves back a week. This creates a conflict with New Orleans’ Mardi Gras celebrations, which will begin on February 13th.

Instead, new Allegiant Stadium located in Las Vegas will be the host for the Super Bowl 57 in 2024. The stadium, which finished construction in July 2020, was built as the Las Vegas Raiders moved from Oakland. It was the home of the 2022 Pro Bowl and will be the location for the 2022 NFL Draft.

Super Bowl LIX 2025: Mercedez-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana

After the regular season changes, the league decided to move the New Orleans host year to 2025 as Mardi Gras is not until March. The Big Easy will host the Super Bowl for the 11th time.

The last time the game was in Louisiana was 2013 for Super Bowl XLVII. The Baltimore Ravens took down the San Fransico 49ers in the “Harbaugh brother bowl.” This game became infamous for its 22-minute power outage, causing a 34-minute stoppage in play just after the start of the second half.

In their pitch to host the Super Bowl again, New Orleans Saints’ owner Gayle Benson and president Dennis Lauscha focused on the city’s built-in entertainment and compact downtown area. In addition, they stressed the reputation New Orleans has as a travel destination.

It will be intriguing to see which cities the NFL decides to select for the future Super Bowl locations beyond 2025.

What determines Super Bowl locations?

The NFL created a new model for determining what city is selected for the Super Bowl a few years back. In the past, cities placed bids to compete against each other for hosting rights.

In the new model, the NFL asks a city if it would like to host. From there, they create a plan. This eliminates hard feelings when one city is selected over another. As a result, other cities no longer need to waste unnecessary time and resources.

On one hand, why would cities spend the time to make the bid? The Super Bowl provides a huge economic boost to the hosting city. This is why the host takes years from the moment they agree until kickoff planning this monumental event.
