Atlanta, L.A., Miami likely to host 2019-2021 Super Bowls

The NFL owners will decide on Tuesday which three cities will host the Super Bowls in 2019, 2020 and 2021, and that decision is expected to show that building a new stadium or rehabbing an old one is the path to hosting America’s biggest sporting event.

Atlanta, Los Angeles and Miami are likely to host Super Bowls LIII, LIV and LV (that’s 53, 54 and 55), in some order.

Atlanta is in the process of building a new stadium for the Falcons, with plenty of help from taxpayers. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross paid for renovations to his stadium, and Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke is largely building his new stadium with private money.

New Orleans and Tampa are also bidding to host future Super Bowls, but they are considered underdogs. New Orleans is only bidding on the 2019 game because the city is hosting other events in 2020 and 2021, and is highly likely to lose out to Atlanta. The Buccaneers are currently in the process of renovating.

Next year’s Super Bowl will be played in Houston, and the 2018 game will be played in the Vikings’ new stadium in Minnesota.

  1. I love the Saints and the Superdome, but they have no shot. A new stadium trumps a renovated one. That’s how the NFL owners roll. All about rewarding extra money brought in by a new stadium. It’s the game known as “quid pro quo.”

  2. Nothing will beat Dallas’s folding chairs in the aisles…that was the best…

  3. The NFL had a chance to have New Orleans host the SuperBowl for the city’s tricentennial celebration. Instead, we get Minnesota.

  4. and the Dolphins’ stadium got tax money for its recent renovations….

    Slightly True. Stephen Ross put up $370M of his own money and Dade County is on the hook for Rebates/Usage from Economic Development (aprrox. $25-40M). Every business gets these incentives. In fact, Sun Life Stadium is a good investment for the Tax Payer because for every $1 spent it returns $2.22. Ross is a crappy football guy, but no one doubts his ability to make money. Everything he touches makes money hand over fist. Miami is a great venue for Super Bowls. Always was and always will be.

  5. San Diego can host a Super Bowl, if voters are bright enough to pass a measure Novemeber 8th. It would be the visitors and tourists actually helping to fund the new stadium and expanded convention center.

    A Super Bowl in Las Vegas would be amazing. Hopegully they approve financing ASAP so they can break ground.

  6. Cincinnati please. … we have plenty of hotels and things to do here the media loves to ignore….. mlb all star week was a massive hit here

  8. Well, that’s one way to get Miami involved in the post season. Too bad the Patriots will be representing the AFC. Miami hasn’t won a playoff game since 2000. They have actually been in two playoff games since. But they only scored a total of 12 points, BOTH LOSSES. Yikes……..and pity.
