With Bay Area Locked In, Cities Vie To Host Future Super Bowls

  • 49ers' Levi's Stadium set to host 2026 Super Bowl.
  • L.A., Nashville could be on tap as future sites later this decade.

The Super Bowl will likely head back to the Bay Area — a decade after Levi’s Stadium hosted the final game of Peyton Manning’s career.

Multiple reports are now confirming that the league will award the San Francisco 49ers hosting rights to Super Bowl LX in 2026.

The move is expected to become official at next week’s NFL owners meetings in Minneapolis.

In 2016, a study found that Super Bowl 50, which saw the Denver Broncos defeat the Carolina Panthers, had a net positive economic impact of at least $240 million on the Bay Area. 

Super Bowl LVIII will be played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas before the Big Game in 2025 heads to New Orleans for the 11th time. With the next three Super Bowl hosts set, the NFL can shift its focus to finding cities for Super Bowl LVI and beyond.

The Los Angeles Rams want to bring it back to SoFi Stadium in 2027 after becoming the second team to win a championship in their home venue in 2022.

The Tennessee Titans are building a new stadium that could open in 2027, but the NFL typically waits to play a Super Bowl at a new venue after its second season, which could give Nashville the chance to host as early as February 2029.

Miami and Phoenix will likely continue to host Super Bowls on a regular basis, as well.
