With this game, the Miami metropolitan region equaled New Orleans, Louisiana for the most Super Bowls hosted (9). This was the fourth Super Bowl to be held at Dolphin Stadium, also known as "Joe Robbie Stadium" and "Pro Player Stadium." The stadium opened in 1990 and closed in 2013 after 48 years of use. It was replaced by Hard Rock Stadium which opened in 2017.
The Miami metropolitan area has had more Super Bowls than any other location. It also ranks first among U.S. cities of a million people or more in terms of total revenue from the NFL. The next highest ranking city is New York with two games. Los Angeles has never hosted a Super Bowl game. Chicago has never been ranked higher than 13th since the Super Bowl began being ranked nationally in 1986.
Miami has hosted the most Super Bowls out of all American cities. San Francisco and New York have each hosted one Super Bowl game but they are played in different months and thus cannot be counted twice by our system. However, if we count the Super Bowls that were played at Stanford Stadium and Yale Bowl, respectively, then Miami would still be in the lead.
Miami has made more money than any other city from hosting Super Bowl games. The city has earned $150 million so far with several more games expected to be played there in the future.
New Orleans has hosted the Super Bowl 11 times, tying Miami for the most in NFL history, with 7 of those games taking place in the Superdome. The last time New Orleans hosted the game was Super Bowl XLVII in 2013, when the Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-31.
The first Super Bowl was held at Tulane University in New Orleans on January 15, 1967, with the Los Angeles Rams defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 24-9 before a crowd of 65,173 people. The game was originally supposed to be played at Rice Stadium in Houston but after Hurricane Betsy caused major damage to the stadium, its owner moved it to Louisiana where it was repaired in time for the game. Los Angeles's Marv Levy made $15,000 as part of his contract with the Rams for guiding them to the championship.
New Orleans has been selected to host Super Bowls through 2021. The NFL awarded the game to New Orleans in March 2009 after the city was devastated by hurricanes Katrina and Rita the previous year. The decision was met with criticism from some former players who felt that hosting the game while so many cities were still recovering from disaster was wrong. However, Commissioner Roger Goodell noted that the league had other sites that would have been just as attractive, such as Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Atlanta, or Dallas, all of which had recently hosted Super Bowls themselves.
New Orleans has successfully managed to revive itself since returning from bankruptcy in 2011.
The city in Florida has hosted the showpiece event eleven times, most recently when it welcomed fans from all around the world for the Super Bowl in 2020. From 1967 until 2021, the number of Super Bowls hosted by a city.
|Characteristic||Super Bowls hosted|
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.
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 similar in that they're both large cities with strong football traditions that have been able to attract top-level athletes as well as innovative marketing agencies.
They also happen to be two of the most popular sports destinations in the United States. Miami is known for its sunny weather and beaches. New Orleans is known for its Mardi Gras celebration and famous musicians.
Both cities have also invested heavily in sports facilities over the years. The Dolphins' Sun Life Stadium and the Saints' Mercedes-Benz Superdome are among the best stadiums in the NFL.
Miami and New Orleans are two of the only cities that have been able to maintain their appeal despite the fact that many people now choose to follow different sports teams in those cities. Miami is home to the NFL's Miami Dolphins and the MLB's Miami Marlins; while New Orleans is home to the NFL's New Orleans Saints and the NBA's New Orleans Pelicans.
Miami has the most Super Bowls (11), followed by New Orleans (10), Los Angeles (five), and Pasadena (five). The Rams and Chargers might join the Buccaneers in 2020 as the only teams to have won Super Bowls in their home stadiums. In fact, no other team has ever done this.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the most appearances in the Super Bowl with nine, followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers with eight and Dallas Cowboys with seven. The Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos both have six championships. No other team has ever appeared in more than five Super Bowls.
Tampa Bay played in its first Super Bowl in 1971 against your Philadelphia Eagles who had defeated them in the NFC Championship Game. The Bucs lost that game 17-14. Tampa Bay has not missed the championship game since then and is now 2-3 in such games.
In 1992, your Tampa Bay Buccaneers made history by becoming the first team to win three straight Super Bowls. They beat your Buffalo Bills, 27-17, in Super Bowl XXVIII, defeated your Indianapolis Colts, 16-6, in Super Bowl XXIX, and defeated your Chicago Bears, 10-9, in Super Bowl XXXI. This is the only team that has accomplished this feat.
Stadium at the University of Phoenix (Glendale, Ariz.) The Levi's Stadium (Santa Clara, Calif.)
MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, has been chosen as the site for Super Bowl XLVIII. Three stadiums competed for the right to host the game: Four Super Bowls have been held in Tampa (XVIII, XXV, XXXV, and XLIII). Ten Super Bowls have been held in South Florida/Miami (I, III, V, X, XIII, XXIII, XXIX, XXXIII, XLI, and XLIV).
