Super Bowl Handoff: Las Vegas Prepares for Its Big Game

  • Las Vegas is already well into its preparation to host Super Bowl LVIII.
  • The city is also looking forward to Formula 1 and NCAA championships.

With Super Bowl LVII in the books, the hype is already rising for next year’s Big Game.

Super Bowl LVIII will take place in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium, which tagged in after a planned game in New Orleans was pushed back one year to avoid conflict with Mardi Gras.

While Super Bowl LVII was played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, hundreds of thousands of visitors made the trek to Las Vegas over the weekend to enjoy the game.

Around 50 members of the Las Vegas Super Bowl Committee traveled to Phoenix to meet with media partners, NFL officials, and Phoenix officials.

More Big Games Coming?

The city hopes the Super Bowl will show what it can offer as a host of major sporting events.

“It’s the tentpole event that all other events look at,” committee executive director Sam Joffray told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “If you can host a Super Bowl, you can host a College Football [Playoff] championship game, a Final Four … the sports economy in Vegas in the long haul is going to be robust.”

The city will host a Formula 1 race this November. Clark County has signaled a willingness to host the race for a decade or more.

Las Vegas also will host the 2028 NCAA Men’s Final Four and a handful of other NCAA championships in the coming years.
