Los Angeles in running to host Super Bowl LIV or LV

During an NFL owners meeting Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2016, in Houston the owners voted to allow the St. Louis Rams to move to a new stadium just outside Los Angeles, and the San Diego Chargers will have an option to share the facility.

It’s become a tradition in the NFL for new stadiums to get the chance to host the Super Bowl and the expectation throughout the process of getting the Rams to Los Angeles was that their forthcoming stadium in Inglewood would get that chance as well.

It could come a little bit sooner than expected. The NFL will hold the next two Super Bowls in Houston and Minneapolis and they’ll vote on the locations of the next three games at league meetings in May. Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times reports that Los Angeles will be able to bid on Super Bowls LIV and LV, which will be played after the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

New stadiums have traditionally had to wait until they’ve been up and running for at least two years before being eligible to host the Super Bowl, but Farmer reports that the league’s Super Bowl Advisory Committee will deviate from that “guiding principle” to make the Inglewood stadium a possibility after its inaugural season.

“We began discussions with local leaders almost immediately after the vote on how to bring the Super Bowl to Los Angeles,” Rams executive vice president of football operations Kevin Demoff said. “We’ve continued those discussions with the NFL, and we’re excited by the opportunity to bid for either 2020 or 2021. We recognize there are a lot of great candidates who have already bid, and we’re working quickly to make sure that Los Angeles’ bid can be considered and we can return the Super Bowl to Southern California and Inglewood.”

New Orleans, Atlanta, Miami and Tampa are other cities under consideration for one of the games the league will be voting on in May. The NFL has held seven Super Bowls in the Los Angeles area, but none since the Cowboys beat the Bills in Super Bowl XXVII at the Rose Bowl.

    if NY (NJ) got to host despite being cold weather venues, then there’s no chance LA will not once the new stadium is built

    Just got back from LA and the fact is that I did not see any Rams gear either being worn or on display.

    No Chargers either, just the Raiders.

    That headline made me think LA was trying to host back to back Super Bowls.

    Miami is getting one with all the upgrades going on at the stadium

    I live in LA and I am chargers fan. our fan base is weak as hell, but to say you didn’t see any Raiders or Rams gear is crazy. Unfortunately its everywhere I look!

    Would be fitting if South Beach hosts LIV

    Not gonna lie, I was a bit disappointed to see a west coast super bowl. It’s a small thing but there is some charm to having a night kickoff and seeing all the flashbulbs in the crowd from the cameras.

    In my opinion LA should host every year. TV and celebrities already there. Great weather. Media and corporate types can’t complain. Plenty of hotels. Seems like a no brainer to me.

    Work on getting the turf right first…that seems to be a big problem in California.

    Stop with the Roman Numerals. We are not in ancient Rome.

  11. justintuckrule says: Mar 3, 2016 2:25 PM

    Better not wait 2 years. They could be back in StL before then.

  12. dpdonny says: Mar 3, 2016 2:34 PM

    Um, I thought the NFL was done with Roman numerals.

    David Grutman is foaming at the mouth for Miami to host Super Bowl LIV

    Will Liv Tyler do the halftime show for Super Bowl 54?

  15. ctiggs says: Mar 3, 2016 4:59 PM

    If they did the superbowl every year in LA they would not even need a team. The fake people that can afford it are already there.

    Hold on, they just might. RG1 has been in lust with LA for so long it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if he ordered 2 in a row there.

    How many teams does Los Angeles get before they finally support them.

  18. BigAlHeBDMan says: Mar 3, 2016 7:00 PM

    Get ready for the $20000 ticket.

  19. jvillenole says: Mar 3, 2016 7:11 PM

    I travel to LA all the time, and they are geeked about the Rams. They could care less about the Raiders and the Chargers…

  20. mdintino1420 says: Mar 3, 2016 8:38 PM

    I agree with the last poster. The Rams are a Los Angeles thing! Oakland is 370 miles away. The Rams were in Los Angeles before the Dodgers.

    I am not sure why Kroenke’s new stadium will be indoors. The weather is so beautiful there. Anyhow, it will be an amazing venue..

  21. 31teamsarebetterthanthepackers says: Mar 3, 2016 8:52 PM

    Doesn’t matter. The Packers won’t be there so all will be right with the world.

  22. fordbw says: Mar 3, 2016 9:35 PM

    As the Randy Newman song says” I love LA! We love it!

  23. TomsulasMustache says: Mar 3, 2016 11:23 PM

    Chargers are so to be the new Clippers

  24. mcjon22 says: Mar 3, 2016 11:32 PM

    So, architect for the Rams stadium just ripped off the design from franchise mode in Madden.

  25. Drunk Uncle says: Mar 3, 2016 11:37 PM

    The West Coast is the Best Coast. That is all.

    Heck, at least the St. Louis plan was open air.

    Enos’ behavior and deceitful ways were abhorrent over the last 3yrs. And he lied his ass off when he faced the owners about why he needed to move. Why they would reward the porn mustache and hairpiece now is beyond me.
