Arizona and New Orleans will each host a future Super Bowl, with the NFL selecting the locations for games in 2023 and 2024, respectively.
The NFL had approached the two sites about hosting upcoming Super Bowls. That opened the door for University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale to land Super Bowl LVII in 2023, while the Mercedes-Benz Superdome was put up for consideration as the site of Super Bowl LVIII in 2024.
Approval of the two sites was granted Wednesday. Home of the Arizona Cardinals, University of Phoenix Stadium has hosted two previous Super Bowls, including Super Bowl XLII (2008) and Super Bowl XLIX (2015). For the Mercedes-Benz Superdome–home of the New Orleans Saints–Super Bowl LVIII will mark the eighth to be played at the stadium, and the first since Super Bowl XLVII in 2013. It will be the 11th overall to take place in New Orleans. More from NFL.com:
“We’re thrilled to be returning to those cities,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told reporters during a Wednesday news conference.
The two cities have extensive experience in playing host to one of the top-watched events in the league.
Arizona has previously hosted three Super Bowls, including two at the University of Phoenix Stadium and one at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.
“We’re thrilled by the unanimous vote,” Cardinals president Michael Bidwill said. “And we look forward to making this the most fan-friendly Super Bowl in the history of Super Bowls, and bigger and better than any Super Bowl. So, we’re excited to host it.”
With this announcement, the NFL has now confirmed the sites for all Super Bowls from 2019-2024. For the 2019-2022 stretch, the game will run through Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta Falcons), Hard Rock Stadium (Miami Dolphins), Raymond James Stadium (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), and the upcoming Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park (Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers).
