Those who are looking forward to attending a Super Bowl in the upcoming years now can start planning. The NFL has recently announced the places to host the Super Bowl for the next five seasons, with next year’s version being held in Florida.
Here are the locations for the next five Super Bowl seasons:
Super Bowl LV: on February 7, 2021, in Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Florida

Super Bowl LVII: on February 5, 2023, in State Farm Stadium, Glendale, Arizona
Super Bowl LVIII: TBD
Super Bowl LIX: on February 9, 2025, in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, New Orleans, Louisiana
Each of these stadiums has hosted a Super Bowl event before except two stadiums, including the new SoFi Stadium, opened in September 2020 as home to the Los Angeles Chargers and Los Angeles Rams, and Allegiant Stadium, home to the Las Vegas Raiders.
Originally, New Orleans was chosen to host the 2024 Super Bowl, however, it was moved to 2025 fue to conflicts with the Mardi Gras.
In terms of the next year’s edition, the 2021 Super Bowl 2021 may set the record for smallest number of spectators due to the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to ESPN, the Super Bowl LV on Feb. 7 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa has been planned to have only 20 percent seating capacity. Spectators will be in place separated by six feet and will be required to wear masks as part of COVID-19 safety methods.
The capacity of the stadium is 65,890, so that would allow only more than 13,000 fans to the building at the end of a season played during a global pandemic.
Meanwhile, the Super Bowl I attracted a total of 61,946 fans to the Los Angeles Coliseum in 1967. It is the only version not to sell out in the history of the Super Bowl.
