Here is a list of all the Super Bowls that have taken place in Miami. The next four Super Bowl sites have already been determined. The Super Bowl will return to Tampa in 2021, then to the new Los Angeles stadium in 2022, Glendale, Ariz., in 2023, and New Orleans in 2024.
The Super Bowl will not leave Miami again until 2033. By then, the city expects to have become the first major American sports franchise to play its home games in every time zone. The Miami Dolphins plan to move into a $1 billion, 80,000-seat facility on Biscayne Bay near Marlins Park once their current stadium is demolished.
Miami has hosted the Super Bowl five times, most recently in 2006. It also played host to two other championship games before that: 1965 and 1983. The latter event was known as the Florida State University vs. University of Miami football game because both teams were ranked 1st at the time. Miami won 29-0.
The Miami Super Bowls generated more than $150 million in revenue for the city's economy. More than 100,000 people traveled to Miami for those events alone!
In addition to the millions of dollars made by the Super Bowls, there are many other benefits that come with hosting them. Host cities often receive an influx of tourists from around the world when the game is held in their area.
The Miami-Dade County region has previously hosted ten Super Bowls, and the 11th will break a tie with New Orleans for the most in the country. (However, New Orleans will tie Miami again when it hosts Super Bowl 58 in 2024.)
Tampa was an easy pick to fill the Super Bowl 2021 site vacancy due to its previous success as a host. The city has hosted the Super Bowl four times, twice at the old Tampa Stadium and twice in Raymond James Stadium, home of the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The stadium, which can accommodate 75,000 people, staged its inaugural NFL game in 1998.
The 57th Super Bowl will take place on February 5, 2023, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. State Farm Stadium is the Arizona Cardinals' home stadium and has previously hosted Super Bowl 42 and Super Bowl 49. While the venue of Super Bowl 59 has yet to be chosen, the host of Super Bowl 58 has.
Miami Which city has been the site of the most Super Bowls? That's Miami for you. It has visited South Florida eleven times, most recently for Super Bowl 54 in 2020. Cleveland is the only current NFL city that has never hosted nor played in a Super Bowl.
San Francisco San Francisco has hosted two Super Bowls so far, both in February. They are currently hosting their second game of 2020 - Super Bowl LIV. The Bay Area has been the site of many other major sports events throughout the years, such as NBA games (most recently Warriors vs Cavaliers), MLB games (A's vs Giants), and NHL games (Golden State Warriors).
New York New York has hosted three Super Bowls so far, all in February. They are currently hosting their second game of 2020 - Super Bowl LV. The Big Apple has been the site of many other major sports events throughout the years, such as NBA games (most recently Celtics vs Wizards), MLB games (Blue Jays vs Red Sox), and NHL games (Islanders vs Panthers).
Chicago Chicago has hosted two Super Bowls so far, both in February. They are currently hosting their second game of 2020 - Super Bowl LI. The Windy City has been the site of many other major sports events throughout the years, such as NBA games (most recently Bulls vs Nets), MLB games (White Sox vs Cubs), and NHL games (Blackhawks vs Stars).

Not every Super Bowl has been held in the balmy climates of Miami or New Orleans. Indeed, there have been some unusual host locations for the big game, particularly in its early years. Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto, California, which hosted Super Bowl XIX in January 1985, was one of the strangest Super Bowl host venues. The game was played after a long hiatus because of the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow. NCAA rules required that if a championship were not offered, then it had to be canceled-in this case, the football season had been cancelled too. So when college football's top prize returned in 1984, it was seen as important enough to warrant a spot in the Super Bowl lineup.
The game itself was won by the San Francisco 49ers, who defeated the Chicago Bears 23-7 at Stanford Stadium. Quarterback Steve Young led the charge for San Francisco, throwing for three touchdowns and rushing for another. Wide receiver Dwight Clark caught two of those scores from Young. The victory gave the Niners their first Super Bowl title.
There have been other strange hosts for the Super Bowl too. In 2007, the NFL decided to move the venue of the game from Arizona to Indianapolis due to security concerns over the state of Arizona's stadium. However, instead of playing in University of Phoenix Stadium, as expected, the Cardinals moved their franchise to Phoenix while the Seahawks went to Indianapolis to play the Colts in what was supposed to be a Sunday night game.
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 number of Super Bowls hosted by a city between 1967 and 2021. The 2011 Super Bowl was held in Miami. New Orleans gets a ten. 7. Los Angeles 5th of May, Tampa
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).
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 gone outside of North America for a Super Bowl site.
There have been previous versions of the Super Bowl. Who has won more recently?
Super Bowl I was played at Stanford Stadium in Stanford, California on February 7, 1967. The game was not part of a series, but rather, the first ever championship game between professional football teams. The AFL's Houston Oilers defeated the National Football League's Green Bay Packers by a score of 45-10.
Super Bowl II was played at Rice Stadium in Houston on January 15, 1968. The Packers beat the Oilers by a score of 31-13. This was also the first ever Super Bowl played in Texas.
Super Bowl III was played at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans on January 19, 1969. The Packers beat the Oilers by a score of 21-10. This was also the first Super Bowl to be played during regular season week 16. Previously, all Super Bowl games had been played during regular season week 1 or 2.
