NFL awards Super Bowls to Arizona, New Orleans
The NFL made it official Wednesday morning: Arizona and New Orleans will get Super Bowls in 2023 and 2024.
The decision had been expected this week as the NFL owners meet for their spring meeting in Atlanta.
Super Bowl LVII will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, in 2023, while Super Bowl LVIII will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans in 2024.
The Superdome, which last hosted the NFL’s championship game in 2013, will be hosting the Super Bowl for a record eighth time.
University of Phoenix Stadium, the suburban Phoenix retractable roof stadium in that’s home to the Arizona Cardinals, also hosted Super Bowls in 2008 and 2015.
The NFL had previously awarded the next four Super Bowls, with Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta (2019), Hard Rock Stadium in Miami (2020), Raymond James Stadium in Tampa (2021) and the new Hollywood Park stadium in Los Angeles (2022) hosting those games.
The NFL owners also voted Wednesday to award the 2019 NFL draft to Nashville, home of the Tennessee Titans.
The Tennessee capital will be hosting the draft for the first time.
The draft had been held in New York City each year from 1965 to 2014, but has since been rotating to different cities, with Chicago hosting in 2015-16, followed by Philadelphia in 2017 and AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, this year.
