Second time for venue
SoFi Stadium has been named the venue for Super Bowl LXI in early 2027, according to an ESPN report.
Team owners voted on Dec. 13 during league meetings in Dallas. According to the ESPN report, Super Bowl LXI will be broadcast on ESPN and ABC -- the first ever Super Bowl broadcast for ESPN and the first for ABC since Super Bowl XL in February 2006.
SoFi Stadium played host to its first Super Bowl in February 2022, which saw the Rams defeat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 in Super Bowl LVI.
Hosting Super Bowl LXI in 2027 would put Los Angeles in the worldwide sporting spotlight for three straight years -- with the region scheduled to play host to a portion of the 2026 World Cup, and then hosting the 2028 Summer Olympics.
This season’s Super Bowl LVIII will be played in February at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Super Bowl LIX will be played in February 2025 at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, and Super Bowl LX will be played in February 2026 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, home to the San Francisco 49ers.
