NFL owners have reportedly chosen a venue for Super Bowl 60.
According to a report from Ben Fischer of Sports Business Journal, the expectation is that team owners will “award” Super Bowl 60 to Levi’s Stadium, the home of the San Francisco 49ers since 2014.
Nick Wagoner of ESPN confirmed Fischer’s report through a source.
“If the Bay Area has the opportunity, we would be honored to host Super Bowl LX,” said 49ers team president Al Guido in a statement, per Wagoner.
Levi’s Stadium also hosted the milestone 50th Super Bowl on Feb. 7, 2016, which saw the Denver Broncos defeat the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in the big game. That turned out to be the final game of Peyton Manning’s Hall of Fame career.
Next year’s Super Bowl, the 58th edition of the big game, will be played on Feb. 11, 2024 at Levi’s Stadium (home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders) in Paradise, Nevada. The New Orleans Saints’ home venue, the Caesars Superdome, will host Super Bowl 59 on Feb. 9, 2025.
The Super Bowl was never held at the 49ers’ previous home venue of Candlestick Park. However, they did play in (and won) Super Bowl 19 against the Miami Dolphins in Stanford Stadium — approximately 30 miles from San Francisco.
Super Bowl 58 between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles was played at the Arizona Cardinals’ home field of State Farm Stadium in Glendale. This was the third Super Bowl to be held at State Farm Stadium, the others being Super Bowl 42 between the New York Giants and New England Patriots and Super Bowl 49 between the Patriots and Seattle Seahawks.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
