LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — Los Angeles will host Super Bowl LV in 2021, NFL owners voted Tuesday.
The event will be held at the $2.6 billion NFL stadium and entertainment complex that Rams owner Stan Kroenke has committed to building in Inglewood.
NFL owners also voted in Charlotte, North Carolina, on host cities for Super Bowl LLIII and LIV taking place in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
Atlanta was chosen to host the Super Bowl in 2019 and Miami will host in 2020. Los Angeles was seen as a likely pick for hosting either the 2021 game, since the Inglewood stadium is expected to be completed in 2019.
LA Mayor Eric Garcetti praised the owners’ decision to bring the Super Bowl To Inglewood.
“Los Angeles is built to host the Super Bowl,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said. “We helped forge this great American tradition as its very first host in 1967, and now, at long last, we’re bringing it back where it belongs.”
LA has previously hosted the Super Bowl seven times — most recently at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena in 1993.
