The Super Bowl is going to be held indoors for a little while.
After last year’s contest in Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, the Super Bowl heads out west to SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, for Super Bowl 56.
From then on, the Super Bowl will continue to be held in dome stadiums for a while. Each of the next three announced venues will have a roof over the heads of the fans and players, and will be in warmer weather areas, as is typical of the Super Bowl.
Sporting News has you covered with all you need to know about the location of this year’s Super Bowl, as well as the host site in future years.
Where is the Super Bowl this year?
This year’s Super Bowl will be held at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California.
The home of the Rams and the Chargers, SoFi Stadium was originally set to host the Super Bowl in 2021, however its opening was delayed until 2020, and NFL rules dictate that a stadium has to be open for at least two seasons before it can host the titlegame.
This will be the third time the city has hosted the Super Bowl, with the LA Memorial Coliseum having hosted it twice (1967, 1973). Pasadena also hosted the Super Bowl five times (1977, 1980, 1983, 1987, 1993) in the Rose Bowl.
SoFi Stadium can seat 70,000 people, but it will expand out to hold 100,000 for the big game. It will be the host site of future major events like the 2023 College Football Playoff National Championship and the 2028 Summer Olympics.
Future Super Bowl locations

|State Farm Stadium, Super Bowl 57
|Allegiant Stadium, Super Bowl 58
|Caesars Superdome, Super Bowl 59
Super Bowl 2023: Glendale/Phoenix
The Super Bowl will stay out west for another year as State Farm Stadium is slated to be the next host of the game.
Formerly the University of Phoenix Stadium, State Farm Stadium has hosted the Super Bowl previously in 2008 and 2015. Among active NFL stadiums, only the Caesars Superdome and Hard Rock Stadium will have hosted the big game more than the home of the Cardinals in 2023. Raymond James Stadium has also hosted three times.
The stadium will be able to seat up to 73,000 people, with standing room for nearly 79,000 at the game.
Super Bowl 2024: Las Vegas
SoFi Stadium isn’t the only new venue slated to host the Super Bowl in the near future.
In 2024, the game will be held in Paradise, Nevada, home of the Las Vegas Raiders. Allegiant Stadium opened in 2020, coinciding with the team’s move from Oakland to Nevada.
Typically, about 65,000 people can be seated in the stadium, but it can expand to nearly 72,000 for large events.
Super Bowl 2025: New Orleans
The Caesars Superdome, formerly the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, will continue to build on its record with its eighth Super Bowl hosted in 2025.
The game was originally expected to be the host in 2024, but because of a scheduling conflict with Mardi Gras, it had to be pushed back a year.
The last time the New Orleans-based stadium hosted the Super Bowl was in 2013, when it was still the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. It had previously hosted the game in 1978, 1981, 1986, 1990, 1997 and 2002. The venue can hold nearly 77,000 people for major events when expanded.
