Report: Super Bowls in 2019-2021 Awarded To Atlanta, Miami, Los Angeles
May 24, 2016 at 1:15 PM (PT)
The NFL awarded SUPER BOWLS to ATLANTA (2019), MIAMI (2020) and LOS ANGELES (2021).
ATLANTA will host SUPER BOWL LIII, its third, but the first at its new $1.4 billion stadium which opens in 2017. The previous two were at the GEORGIA DOME.
MIAMI will be the home stadium for SUPER BOWL LIV, its record-setting 11th following a $450 million stadium renovation.
LOS ANGELES, which gets the relocated RAMS this season, has not hosted a SUPER BOWL in the area since 1993 in the ROSE BOWL in PASADENA. SUPER BOWL LV will be played at the new $2.6 billion stadium in INGLEWOOD, which opens in 2019.
The selections maintain the recent tendency of the league's owners to reward cities that have built new stadiums or renovated existing facilities with the lucrative reward of hosting a SUPER BOWL in return.
Last year's SUPER BOWL 50 was played in SANTA CLARA, CA, after the 49ers built a stadium. MINNEAPOLIS will host a SUPER BOWL in 2018 with a new stadium that opens this season.
NEW YORK-NEW JERSEY, INDIANAPOLIS, DALLAS and DETROIT all received SUPER BOWL bids in the past after spending millions on new stadiums.
ATLANTA also will stage the COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF championship game in JANUARY 2018.
MIAMI will move ahead of NEW ORLEANS, which has hosted 10 SUPER BOWLS, when it stages its first title showdown since 2010.
The 2021 SUPER BOWL will be the L.A. area's eighth overall, with five at the ROSE BOWL and two at the LOS ANGELES COLISEUM, where the RAMS will play for three seasons until the new stadium opens in 2019.
