The NFL and the Los Angeles Super Bowl Host Committee have confirmed that Super Bowl LVI will be played on Sunday, February 13, 2022 at SoFi Stadium.
The NFL has pushed its regular season to 17 games. That means pushing the Super Bowl to the middle of February because of the added game to the regular season. The regular season will begin on Thursday night, Sept. 9, and will end on Sunday, Jan. 9, 2022.
Next year will mark the 13th Super Bowl played in California. Santa Clara, San Diego, Pasadena, Palo Alto and Los Angles are the California cities that have previously hosted a Super Bowl. California's 12 Super Bowls are second to Florida, which just hosted its 17th Super Bowl between the Chiefs and Buccaneers. Miami's 11 Super Bowls remain the all-time record, followed by New Orleans, Los Angeles and Pasadena.
The last time the Super Bowl was in the Los Angeles region was 1993.
