Super Bowl LV To Be Held In Los Angeles

New, comments

In February 2021, the NFL and the world will descend on Los Angeles for Super Bowl LV.

Four and a half years from now, Los Angeles will finally attract the attention of the entertainment industry.

LA has been chosen to host Super Bowl LV in February 2021.

During the Owners' Spring Meeting today, the Super Bowls from 2019-21 were chosen. Atlanta will host Super Bowl LIII in 2019 in brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium which may or may not be an android sphincter. A year later, Miami will play host following major renovations to New Miami Stadium, renovations that owner Stephen Ross tried to get the public to fund before ultimately paying for it by himself since, yanno, he can.

This will be the third time Los Angeles has held the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl I (in 1967) and Super Bowl VII (1973) were both held in the Rams' current temporary home: Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Super Bowl LV will be held in the new stadium in Inglewood, currently slated to open for the 2019 NFL season.

One clarification. LA proper has hosted the Super Bowl twice, but the metro area has supported it another five times as it was held in the Rose Bowl in 1977 (Super Bowl XI), 1980 (XIV), 1983 (XVII), 1987 (XXI) and 1993 (XXVII).
