The NFL awarded Super Bowls to three cities on Tuesday during league meetings in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Atlanta and its new palace, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, will host Super Bowl LIII in February 2019 – nearly 18 months after its grand opening. It will be the first Atlanta Super Bowl since Mike Jones saved the St. Louis Rams’ bacon in Super Bowl XXXIV.
Meanwhile, Miami will host Super Bowl LIV in February 2020. It will mark South Florida’s return to Super Sunday for the first time since 2010 when the Bountygate Saints shocked Peyton Manning’s Indianapolis Colts.
Recently, Miami fell hard on hard luck related to Super Bowl bids. As a way to solve their stadium issues, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is pouring in a $450 million effort to modernize the stadium. Now, Miami has a Super Bowl once again.
Lastly, the NFL will bring Super Bowl LV to Los Angeles (Inglewood) in 2021. By that point, the Los Angeles Rams will be firmly entrenched in their new, fancy pants $2 billion stadium.
A return to Los Angeles will bring the Super Bowl back to L.A. area since the Dallas Cowboys firebombed the Buffalo Bills 52-17 in January 1993.
Thankfully, this will give us an easy excuse to play Randy Newman’s I Love L.A. on loop leading up to that Super Bowl.
