LOS ANGELES — It’s a done deal. The National Football League (NFL) and the Los Angeles Super Bowl Host Committee (LASBHC) confirmed the Super Bowl LVI game will be played on Sunday, February 13, 2022, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. Los Angeles will welcome the Super Bowl to the region for the first time in nearly three decades.
Los Angeles hosted the first Super Bowl in 1967 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The last time the Super Bowl was in the Los Angeles region was 1993, when the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Buffalo Bills at the Rose Bowl.
The LASBHC is led by the Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission (LASEC) and Host Committee Chairman Casey Wasserman and includes SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park, the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers. The Host Committee is focused on delivering a premier Super Bowl LVI experience that also delivers tremendous economic benefits and community engagement opportunities.
“With Super Bowl LVI officially dated, I join millions of sports fans and Angelenos in looking forward to February 13, 2022 as we build toward one of the most exciting events in our city’s recent history and near future. None of this would be possible without Stan Kroenke’s support and vision for Hollywood Park and SoFi Stadium which is sure to become an iconic Super Bowl destination,” said Casey Wasserman, Chairman, Los Angeles Super Bowl Host Committee.
The Los Angeles Super Bowl Host Committee has already launched several significant community initiatives in partnership with the NFL, including the Super Bowl LVI Business Connect program, which earlier this month selected 225 local, diverse businesses to take part in a professional development program that will help lead to Super Bowl subcontracting opportunities as well as post-Super Bowl business.
Additionally, the Host Committee launched its Legacy program Champions Live Here, which will recognize 56 “unsung hero” community organizations who are making a positive difference in communities across the Los Angeles area and award them with grant funding.
