San Diego, California San Diego hasn't hosted a Super Bowl since 2003, when the Buccaneers thrashed the Raiders after Oakland's center went on a bender in Tijuana, Mexico. "America's Finest City" has now lost the Chargers, Clippers, and Padres to Los Angeles 15 times in a row. The only team left is Seattle's Seahawks, but that game isn't until 2014.
The closest San Diego ever came to hosting another Super Bowl was in 1984, when the Saints were scheduled to play at Qualcomm Stadium. But New Orleans was struck by Hurricane Joan, so the game had to be moved to Pasadena, California. The Saints lost that game 23-7 to the Giants.
In 1990, Miami was set to host the Super Bowl. But the game was canceled due to concerns over Miami's new stadium. The Dolphins eventually moved into Sun Life Stadium, which they still play in today.
Dallas is also no longer considered a Super Bowl city because of its recent drought. The Cowboys haven't played in one since 2004 when they lost to the Steelers 24-14 at Texas Stadium. That's not even counting the two World Football Championships that were held in Dallas in 1949 and 1967. The world knows Dallas as home to American football's biggest day though - Thanksgiving Day.
Seven cities have been awarded Super Bowls with five each being awarded multiple times.
Both Tampa Stadium and Raymond James Stadium have hosted two Super Bowls. The Steelers are the most recent club to achieve success in this Florida town. Los Angeles is not the only California city that have hosted many Super Bowls. San Diego, which no longer has a franchise, has hosted three.
San Diego has hosted the Super Bowl three times: in 1988, 1998, and 2003. Washington Redskins 42, Denver Broncos 42 in Super Bowl XXII 10. Denver Broncos 31, Green Bay Packers 24 Super Bowl XXXII: Denver Broncos 31 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48, Oakland Raiders 21. Houston has three Super Bowls. Houston hosted the Super Bowl three times: in 1974, 2004 and 2017.
The NFL also like visiting New Orleans. In the 1970s, the city hosted the Super Bowl four times: twice in the 1980s, twice in the 1990s, and one more in the 1980s. The most recent Super Bowl was held in New Orleans in 2013. Los Angeles is catching up to Miami and New Orleans in terms of population growth. But it's still a small market compared with these other two cities. The NFL has never awarded the game to a city with fewer than 10 million people.
Miami and New Orleans are both medium-sized cities that have been able to attract major sporting events. The NFL could move either or both of them as part of a realignment plan approved by its owners last year. The league may have decided not to risk another season without playoffs.
The most recent Super Bowl was held at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. The game was played on February 3rd, 2013 between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. It was the second time that Miami hosted the championship game after previously doing so in 1986. The city won its third Super Bowl after beating New England 24-14 in what was then called the Miami-New York Football Classic.
Sun Life Stadium has a capacity of 75,000 for football games but only 40,000 when set up for basketball. The stadium was built in 2003 and has been well maintained by the county government since then. It is located about 15 minutes from downtown Miami in an area known as "Little Havana".
From 1967 until 2021, the number of Super Bowls hosted by a city. Miami is hosting the Super Bowl. Los Angeles 10, New Orleans 11 Tampa is ranked seventh.
The Super Bowl has been played twice in Los Angeles (Memorial Coliseum), five times in Pasadena in the Rose Bowl, three times in San Diego, once at Stanford, and once in Santa Clara (Super Bowl 50). Texas has hosted four Super Bowls, once in Arlington (Super Bowl XL) and three times in Houston (VIII, XXXVIII, and LI).
San Diego, California The game, which took place on January 26, 2003, at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California, was the sixth Super Bowl to be played a week after the conference championship games (including XVII, XXV, XXVIII, XXXIV, and XXXVI). It was also the first Super Bowl held in a non-traditional American football stadium. The game was televised live by NBC with Al Michaels and John Madden as its announcers.
It was also the first Super Bowl played in a venue that is not currently used for NFL games. Qualcomm Stadium is home to the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League (NFL), but it had been announced earlier that year that the team would move into a new facility called The Q upon their completion in 2004. The 2002 season was therefore the last one played in Qualcomm Stadium before it was demolished following the 2001 season. The site is now occupied by a replacement stadium for the Chargers and Los Angeles Rams named SoFi Stadium that opened in 2019.
In addition to the Chargers and Rams, the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball (MLB) play some of their seasons at PETCO Park, which is about 10 miles south of downtown. The Miami Dolphins of the NFL have also played two preseason games at SDCCU Stadium since 2000. The school year begins early in San Diego because students begin classes around mid-August due to warm weather and lack of snowfall.
