Super Bowl 60’s host city has allegedly been selected by the NFL; league owners are likely to make the formal choice during their next annual spring meetings in Minnesota.
During their meetings from May 22 to 24, NFL owners are allegedly planning to award Super Bowl 60 to Levi’s Stadium, home of the 49ers, in Santa Clara, California, according to Ben Fischer of the Sports Business Journal.
The announcement of the anticipated outcome follows an earlier report from Fischer on April 13 saying that the NFL and all parties involved had “advanced discussions” towards bringing the Super Bowl back to Levi’s stadium in three years.
Because so many NFL stadiums are scheduled to host FIFA World Cup games later that year, according to Fischer, Super Bowl 60 is thought to have “lower demand” around the NFL. For the event, which starts in June, FIFA will use 11 NFL sites, including Levi’s Stadium.
The 49ers and their supporters will soon be able to start the countdown to the big game’s return to Santa Clara, with the decision anticipated to become final in the near future. The Broncos defeated the Panthers 24-10 in Super Bowl 50 in 2016, making Super Bowl 60 the second Super Bowl to be held at Levi’s Stadium since it opened in 2014.
With the Raiders hosting Super Bowl 58 at Allegiant Stadium in 2024 and the Saints’ home Caesars Superdome hosting the next year, the anticipated decision will also add the 49ers and Levi’s Stadium to the impending calendar of Super Bowl hosts.
