Las Vegas will play host to Super Bowl LVIII in February 2024 after its relocation from New Orleans due to Mardi Gras conflicts.

According to Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the move to Las Vegas is expected to be approved by the league at this week’s owners’ meetings in Dallas.

New Orleans was originally the host venue for the game before the league expanded its schedule to 17 games beginning this season. The extra week bumped the championship game into conflict with Mardi Gras festivities. New Orleans will now host Super Bowl LIX in 2025 instead.

The move to Las Vegas means the next three Super Bowls will all be in the westernmost third of the United States. SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles will host this year’s game, State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. will host in 2023 with Las Vegas getting the 2024 event.

Las Vegas will also host next year’s NFL Draft. The 2020 draft had been scheduled to be hosted in Las Vegas before the event moved fully virtually in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2022 Pro Bowl will also be held at Allegiant Stadium.

    Will Vegas host if the Raiders have moved by then?’

    The Raiders have total control the stadium and all the events 365 days a year. This, along with ‘Ol Jerrahs stadium in Dallas are (and will be) the two most successful stadiums in the country and will make the Raiders, Las Vegas and the NFL millions of $$$ now, and in the future. The team could go 0-17 and still make millions. Now, if they only had some parking nearby as that 1 mile walk will be a bear in the summer.

  2. Is the 17-game season permanent?

    I’d want to know how it affects player injuries, the sole-bye, and playoffs before making it permanent.

  3. The thing that sucks is some cities build billion $ stadiums and get rewarded with Superbowls while other cities build billion $ stadiums and get nothing from the league in forms of events.
