NFL chooses unbuilt Atlanta and LA stadiums for future Super Bowls in boost for developers

by Matthew Campelli | 01 Jun 2016

Two yet-to-be-built stadiums have been selected to host the National Football League (NFL) Super Bowl in 2019 and 2021.

In a move which appears to encourage the development of new infrastructure, NFL owners plumped for Atlanta Falcons’ HOK-designed Mercedes-Benz Stadium – which is due to open its doors in 2017 – for the 2019 edition of the flagship match.

The 2021 Super Bowl will be contested at the future home of the LA Rams, the ambitious US$1.9bn (£1.3bn, €1.7bn) Inglewood-based arena which is being built to accommodate the franchise’s move from St Louis. The stadium is due to open in 2019.

The decision to bring the Super Bowl to Los Angeles so quickly after the Rams move was ratified by the NFL board chimed with comments made by the organisation’s commissioner, Roger Goodell, who said the development would be “transformational, not just for the Rams, not just for the Los Angeles community, but for the NFL”.

In addition, the 2020 Super Bowl will be played in Miami Dolphins’ Sun Life Stadium after owner Stephen Ross ploughed US$400m (£276.4m, €358.4m) into renovations to bring the match back to South Florida.

“The only thing better than winning the 2020 Super Bowl is playing in it and winning it,” said Ross.
