The National Football League Super Bowl is also known as the “big game” because of how many fans tune in to watch.

As exciting as the football action is for viewers, though, the real big game exhilaration is felt directly by the pocketbooks and wallets of the hosting city.

Being chosen as a Super Bowl Host city is like finding a pot of gold at the back of the end zone, and because of that, becoming a host city is a long and difficult process.

In this article, we examine what’s considered when a Super Bowl host city is chosen, how a city benefits from hosting the big game, and which cities have already been chosen to host future Super Bowls.

Super Bowl Locations

Here’s the list of all known future Super Bowl locations:

2019Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia
2020Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida
2021Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida
2022Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park in Inglewood, CA
2023State Farm Insurance Stadium in Glendale, AZ
2024Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA
2025Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, LA
2026Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA
2027SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA

And here’s a map showing all the Super Bowl locations up to the year 2024:

Where was the Super Bowl Held Last Season?

Super Bowl LVII (57) took place on February 12, 2023, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ. Over 67,000 fans attended the game, which took place between the Kansa City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles.

The game would go down as one of the most memorable in recent memory, with the Chiefs edging out the Eagles after scoring 17 fourth-quarter points. Patrick Mahomes was the game MVP after he completed 21 passes for 182 yards and three touchdowns against a great Eagles defense.

It was the Chiefs' second Super Bowl in four seasons, and they’ll have a chance to add to that total tonight. 

How Big Was Last Year’s Super Bowl Audience?

Over 115.1 million people watched Super Bowl LVII, making it the most-watched TV program of all time. It beat out Super Bowl XLIX, which set the record in 2015. 

The cost of a 30-second commercial was $7 million.

What Was the Biggest Super Bowl Audience Ever?

Last year’s Super Bowl LVII broke the record for the most-watched Super Bowl in history. The Nielsen ratings originally had 113 million people watching the game, but changed the number to 115.1 million in May 2023 thanks to an error in the original calculation.

The updated Nielsen rating caused Super Bowl LVII to go from the third-largest audience to the most in the history of television. 

Is the Super Bowl the Biggest Sporting Event in the World?

While the Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event in the US, it is not the case for the rest of the world.

That honor usually goes to the UEFA Champions League final, the last game of a tournament involving Europe’s top soccer clubs. Those numbers are sometimes topped every four years when the FIFA World Cup is played.

For example, the final of the 2012-2013 UEFA Champions League was the biggest ever.

That match was viewed by an audience of more than 360 million worldwide and had the highest TV ratings to date.

Compare that to the record-setting 114.4 million people who watched Super Bowl XLIX, and you can see that it’s not even close.

Where Was the First Super Bowl Held?

Super Bowl I took place on January 15, 1967, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California.

The capacity of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is 78,467.

The 11-2-1 AFL Kansas City Chiefs took on the mighty 12-2 NFL Green Bay Packers in a game where the Packers were favored by 14.

Under the leadership of Super Bowl MVP quarterback Bart Starr, the Green Bay Packers went on to win the matchup 35-10.

What City has Hosted the Most Super Bowls?

That honor currently goes to Miami, Florida, which has hosted eleven Super Bowls. That total is one more than New Orleans, LA, which currently has ten. 

Spoiler alert: Super Bowl LIX will be held at the Caesars Superdome, which will tie New Orleans with Miami.

Here is a list of all the Super Bowl cities and the number of times each has hosted the big game:

  • Miami (11)

  • New Orleans (10)

  • Los Angeles Metro Area (7)

  • Tampa Bay (4)

  • San Diego (3)

  • Phoenix (3)

  • Houston (3)

  • Detroit (Metro) (2)

  • Atlanta (2)

  • San Francisco (1)

  • Santa Clara (1)

  • Minneapolis-Saint Paul (1)

  • Jacksonville (1)

  • Dallas-Fort Worth (1)

  • Indianapolis (1)

  • NY Metro Area (1)

Which US State Has Hosted the Most Super Bowls?

Florida has hosted the most Super Bowls with 16: Miami (11) + Tampa Bay (4) + Jacksonville (1)

Next up on the list is California with 12: Los Angeles Metro Area (7) + San Diego (3) + San Francisco (1) + Santa Clara (1)

In third place is Louisiana with 10: New Orleans (10)

What Stadium Has Hosted the Most Super Bowls?

First Place

Miami and New Orleans have both hosted the Super Bowl ten times, but both of those cities have done it in two different locations.

The Caesars Superdome (formerly the Louisiana Superdome) has been the location of seven Super Bowls, in 1978, 1981, 1986, 1990, 1997, 2002, 2013.

The capacity of the Caesars Superdome is 83,000.

Second Place

Second on the list is Hard Rock Stadium (formerly Joe Robbie Stadium, Pro Player Stadium, Dolphin Stadium, and Sun Life Stadium), where 5 Super Bowls have been played in 1989, 1995, 1999, 2007, and 2010.

The capacity of Hard Rock Stadium is 65,326.

Which Stadium Is Considered the All-Time Favorite Super Bowl Venue?

That’s arguable, but the Orange Bowl in Miami has held five significant matchups over the course of NFL history.

  • Super Bowl II – Green Bay Packers 33, Oakland Raiders 14

  • Super Bowl III – New York Jets 16, Baltimore Colts 7

  • Super Bowl V – Baltimore Colts 16, Dallas Cowboys 13

  • Super Bowl X – Pittsburgh Steelers 21, Dallas Cowboys 17

  • Super Bowl XIII – Pittsburgh Steelers 35, Dallas Cowboys 31

Two historic notes: Super Bowls II and III are the only two Super Bowls to be played in back-to-back years in the same stadium.

Also, Super Bowl V was the first Super Bowl played on artificial turf.

How Much Money Does a Host City Typically Make During the Super Bowl?

Of course, that varies depending on the city, but let’s just say it’s millions and millions.

Before Super Bowl LII took place at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, an economic impact report was done by the Minneapolis Super Bowl Host Committee.

In this report, it was stated that much of the taxpayer investment in the stadium would be recouped by the region during the event.

According to the report, it was estimated that the Super Bowl would contribute $343 million to the region, including $29 million in tax revenue.

Do Cities Still Bid to Host the Super Bowl?

NFL owners usually meet in May to renegotiate how Super Bowl host cities are chosen.

It’s reported that at that meeting, the league will “formally do away with allowing cities to bid for its marquee event.”

A new selection process will replace bidding, one that involves the league negotiating a suitable deal with a hand-picked city, all designed to give the NFL greater control over where its marquee event takes place year after year.

What Are the Main Considerations When Choosing a Super Bowl Venue?

Currently (until the May NFL owners meeting, at least), it goes like this:

Cities are chosen to host the Super Bowl after placing a bid with the selection committee.

Each bidding city is then put through a rigorous vetting process that takes several factors into consideration.

Due to the huge economic boost the host city will enjoy, bidding cities are very willing to make concessions for the selection committee.

There is a final round, and each city that makes it there gets to present its case for fifteen minutes.

Then each team owner from that city is given five minutes to make a plea.

Other Factors That Matter When Choosing a Host City

Warm vs. Cold Weather

Most Super Bowls are held in warm cities and there’s a reason for that.

It keeps players healthier and happier while keeping travel and game delays to a minimum.

Cold cities are fine (Minneapolis, anyone?) as long as there is a dome stadium involved to keep players and fans warm and dry for the big game.

Stadium Quality

The Super Bowl committee loves new stadiums, especially if they haven’t been built yet.

After 2017, four Super Bowls have been held at brand new stadiums which have been built to fit the Super Bowl committee’s requests. They will be playing in their fifth new stadium in Las Vegas for Super Bowl LVIII.

Plus the fans will have a better time in a newer stadium and find a lot more modern ways to spend their money, which benefits everyone involved.

Local Amenities

With the Super Bowl come thousands of people, and they all need a place to stay, eat and drink.

Cities that boast the ability to provide enough quality hotel rooms, restaurants, and nightclubs usually have the edge with the Super Bowl selection committee.

Hotels will be booked at least a year out for at least five days by media, sponsors, and fans – plus the teams and their staff who will be playing in the game, so if you’re in the service industry it’s quite a financial boon to be able to count on an upcoming Super Bowl in your hometown.

Where Is Super Bowl LVIII Being Held?

Super Bowl LVIII (58), the 58th modern-era NFL championship game, will be held on February 11, 2024, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV.

According to the master plan, Allegiant Stadium has a maximum capacity of 65,000.

The halftime show for this event is still TBA.

This stadium is a one-of-a-kind venue located right on the Las Vegas Strip. Its location makes it easy for fans to stay and play at the city's famous hotels before attending the NFL’s final game.

Not only does it have a Chic-Fil-A, it also powers itself with renewable energy obtained from its 4,000 solar panels and uses 47  percent less water than baseline standards.

And as a bonus: this stadium can store more than 2 million gallons of stormwater on-site to prevent flooding in the area.

Have They Already Picked the Sites of Future Super Bowls?

Yes, they have sites picked through the year 2027.

1. Super Bowl LIX (59) in 2025

Next season’s Super Bowl is set to take place at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, LA. The game will tie New Orleans with Miami as cities that have hosted the most Super Bowls.

New Orleans last hosted the Super Bowl back in 2013, when the Ravens beat the Niners 34-31. 

2. Super Bowl LX (55) in 2026

Super Bowl LX will take place at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. 

The stadium in the Bay Area seats 68,500 fans, making it a great option for hosting the sport’s biggest event.

One interesting factor for this Super Bowl is that the San Francisco 49ers, who call Levi’s Stadium home, will likely be a favorite to make it to the game. Home teams hosting the Super Bowl is rare, but it could give the Niners a massive advantage if they do indeed make it.

3. Super Bowl LXI (59) in 2027

Super Bowl LXI will return to the City of Angels.

The game will be played at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA. The new stadium was built to host events like the Super Bowl, with a capacity of 70,000 that can be expanded to over 100,00.

SoFi hosted its first Super Bowl in 2022 when the Los Angeles Rams got a 23-20 win at their home stadium.

What Other Cities Could Hold the Super Bowl in the Distant Future?

Las Vegas, NV

The Oakland Raiders’ Las Vegas Stadium is hosting its first Super Bowl this season, but it won’t be their last.

The stadium’s location on the famous Las Vegas Strip makes it an appealing destination for fans across the country. The city is also the sports betting capital of the world, making it a popular destination even when the Super Bowl isn’t being played there.

As long as this year’s game goes well, we expect to see the NFL’s biggest game return to the stadium for years to come.

Los Angeles, CA

Builder Stan Kroenke’s Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park in Inglewood, CA was built to host Super Bowls, and Pro Bowls, the draft, and any other major events the NFL has planned.

And with two teams in the city now, the NFL future looks bright for the city of angels.

Dallas, TX

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is anxious to host another Super Bowl at his AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX, especially after what happened the last time he tried it.

During Super Bowl XLV, activities were affected by once-in-a-lifetime Texas snow and ice, and let’s just say not a good time was had by all.
