Super Bowl LV moved from LA to Tampa

"Our focus in this process is this building should host multiple Super Bowls over many generations, and we need to make sure we deliver a building that is an exceptional, Super Bowl-quality building", Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff said last week.

Super Bowl 2021 will now be hosted in Tampa instead of Los Angeles.

The Rams could have asked for a waiver from the league to get around the one-year rule, but Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times wrote Monday that getting one isn't an open-and-shut case.

Less than a week after it was announced that the opening of the football stadium in Inglewood would be delayed by a year, NFL owners voted Tuesday to relocate the 2021 Super Bowl from Los Angeles to Tampa, according to multiple reports.

Today's decision was unanimously approved at the spring owner's meetings in Chicago.

Tampa was a finalist for the 2019 and 2020 Super Bowls but lost out to Atlanta and Miami.

"Being awarded Super Bowl 2021 is a testament to our city's ability to shine on the worldwide stage", said Mayor Bob Buckhorn. This community - Florida's most diverse travel destination - has changed dramatically in the years since 2009, thanks to the Tampa Riverwalk, dozens of incredible new restaurants, and hundreds of new hotel rooms.

New Orleans was considered as a potential backup option, but the city has conflicts with Mardi Gras (Feb. 16) and a national convention in 2021. "Tampa does big events as well as anybody in the world and once again we will rise to the occasion. We will not disappoint".
