With NFL free agency officially in the rearview, teams are setting their sights on the 2020 NFL Draft. As we continue through the offseason, we’re looking ahead — beyond the 2021 Super Bowl in Tampa — at the future hosts of Super Bowls in 2022 and beyond.
2021 — Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida
As everyone knows, the next Super Bowl will take place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida — home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Prior to Super Bowl 55 in 2021, Raymond James Stadium has hosted two prior Super Bowls, and the city of Tampa has hosted four others overall.
2022 — Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles, California
The Super Bowl is heading back to Los Angeles! Returning for the first time since 1993 and Super Bowl XXVII, Super Bowl 56 will be played at SoFi Stadium — the brand new home of the LA Rams and Chargers, which is slated for completion in 2020.
Super Bowl 57 is returning to Glendale, Arizona at State Farm Stadium in 2023! The city’s third time hosting the Super Bowl (and Arizona’s fourth time), the home of the Arizona Cardinals will once again be the center of the football world.
2024 — Super Bowl LVIII in New Orleans, Louisiana
The city of New Orleans will host their record 11th Super Bowl in 2024, their 8th in the famed Mercedes-Benz Superdome (previously the Louisiana Superdome). One of the most popular Super Bowl city hosts, fans will get to experience the incredible New Orleans culture on the NFL’s biggest stage.
The Washington Redskins would once again return to the Super Bowl in 1984, this time squaring off against the AFC Champion Los Angeles Raiders in Super Bowl XVIII.
With a winning score of 38-9, the Los Angeles Raiders took home the Super Bowl XVIII trophy title over the Washington Redskins. The game was played on January 22, 1984 in Tampa, Florida at Tampa Stadium, with a total number of 72,920 people attending. This was the first time the Super Bowl had ever been played in Tampa, Florida.
The Redskins entered Super Bowl XVIII as defending Super Bowl champions. Los Angeles would jump out to an early lead at halftime and never look back, with running back Marcus Allen carrying the ball 20 times for a (at the time) Super Bowl record of 191 yards and two touchdowns.
In 1984, one of the most memorable parts of Super Bowl XVIII was the airing of the famous Apple Macintosh commercial.
There were an estimated 77.26 million viewers of Super Bowl XVIII, and a commercial, such as Apple’s Macintosh commercial, was around $368,000 for a 30-second ad. The national anthem was performed by singer Barry Manilow and was broadcasted by Pat Summerall and former Raiders head coach John Madden.
