The Los Angeles region was selected to host Super Bowl LV in 2021, the National Football League (NFL) announced today. The selection of Los Angeles follows a highly competitive process of which Los Angeles’ bid was led by Casey Wasserman, chairman and chief executive officer of Wasserman, in collaboration with the Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission (LASEC) and Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board (LATCB), comprising the Los Angeles Super Bowl Bid Committee*.NFLLogo

In partnership with the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Super Bowl Bid Committee, the nation’s biggest sporting event will be played at the new Rams stadium in the City of Inglewood, set to open in 2019.

Wasserman and the Los Angeles Super Bowl Bid Committee delivered the successful bid today to all 32 NFL owners in a live presentation in Charlotte. The bid focused on the best of Los Angeles – diversity, creativity, entertainment – and storied history of hosting the world’s biggest sporting events including the Olympics, World Cup, All-Star Weekends and more.

“We are honored that the NFL is bringing the Super Bowl to Los Angeles in 2021. The League’s selection of Los Angeles is a testament to its commitment to innovation and diversity, and I couldn’t be prouder of our winning bid,” said Wasserman. “Stan Kroenke’s vision for the Rams stadium and the surrounding campus makes Inglewood an ideal venue for staging the Super Bowl of the future, and we look forward to inviting the nation and the world to L.A. for an historic fan experience.”

“On the heels of the National Football League’s historic return to Los Angeles, the Rams are proud to be part of such a significant regional effort of teamwork, leadership and vision to bring the Super Bowl back to Southern California,” said Kevin Demoff, COO of the Los Angeles Rams. “We would like to thank the NFL owners for giving us this opportunity to host the nation’s biggest event in sports and entertainment at our world-class stadium, to showcase the great cities of Los Angeles and Inglewood and to deliver an incredible experience for fans from across the globe.”

“Los Angeles is built to host the Super Bowl. We helped forge this great American tradition as its very first host in 1967; and now, at long last, we’re bringing it back where it belongs,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. “L.A. is already welcoming a record number of visitors from around the world, and Super Bowl LV will bring even more economic prosperity to our region — attracting tens of thousands of people to our city and generating hundreds of millions of dollars for local hotels, restaurants, shops and other businesses.”

“The City of Inglewood is thrilled to be the host for the most watched, single sporting event in the world, Super Bowl LV,” said Inglewood Mayor James Butts. “Working with the City of Los Angeles, we intend to help make it the greatest fan experience in the history of the NFL. After a 20 year hiatus, professional football is back.”

The Super Bowl bid includes 60,000 hotel room nights (with the possibility of generating up to 100,000 total room nights). While the Super Bowl will be held in Inglewood, other official and unofficial events will be hosted throughout the region. The Los Angeles Super Bowl Bid Committee will be responsible for raising appropriate funds to offset costs and will work closely with the NFL to deliver the most successful Super Bowl to date in 2021.

“The greatest sporting event deserves the world’s greatest stage and as the entertainment capital of the world, Los Angeles is ready to deliver a Super Bowl like no destination has ever before,” said Kathryn Schloessman, president of Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission. “L.A.’s unparalleled platform of diversity and creativity will propel the League’s global expansion.”

“By being selected as the host of the 2021 Super Bowl, it’s clear the NFL was tremendously impressed with the many strengths of Los Angeles such as our near-perfect weather, abundance of premier venues for ancillary events, world-class hotels and endless entertainment,” said Ernest Wooden Jr., president & CEO of Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board. “We are appreciative of the true collaborative effort from L.A.’s hospitality businesses and community leadership in securing a successful bid for our destination.”

This will be the eighth time the Super Bowl is played in the Los Angeles region, the most recent being in 1993 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena (Super Bowl XXVII).
