The Tampa Bay area is teeming with life as Super Bowl LV and all the festivities surrounding it take over our town. We don't want to rush the experience, but some may be asking: what city gets to host next?
Super Bowl LVI, which will hopefully once again feature the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, will be held at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, home to the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers. The beautiful new stadium has been highly praised by fans across the league, though none have actually been able to go to a game there yet due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Super Bowl LVII in 2023 will be at State Farm Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals. This site was home to Super Bowl XLIX in 2015 when the New England Patriots beat the Seattle Seahawks, 28-24.
Super Bowl LVIII was initially supposed to be in New Orleans, but due to conflicts with the Mardi Gras celebration that year, it will be pushed back one year, meaning this Super Bowl site is still TBD. One potential site is Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders. This is another brand new, beautiful stadium that has yet to see any fans inside due to COVID-19.
Super Bowl LIX will be at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in New Orleans as a result of the scheduling conflict the year prior.
After that, who knows? Maybe someone else will have a new stadium ready to be showcased in the national spotlight.
But before any of those, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will try to become the first team to ever win a Super Bowl in their home city.
Kickoff is Feb. 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs at Raymond James Stadium.
