The Super Bowl is reportedly set to return to Arizona and New Orleans.
On Monday, Daniel Kaplan of Sports Business Journal reported the league will vote on whether to award Super Bowl LVII (2023) to Arizona and Super Bowl LVIII (2024) to New Orleans at the owners meetings Tuesday in Atlanta.
The vote will be part of a new system in which the NFL selects the location and then negotiates terms with the city before putting it to an owners vote, per Kaplan. Previously, multiple cities pitched their Super Bowl packages, and then owners voted on a favorite.
The Cardinals would be hosting their third Super Bowl at their current stadium. Super Bowl XLII (2008) and XLIX (2015) were both played at University of Phoenix Stadium. The New England Patriots participated in both of those games, losing to the New York Giants in 2008 and defeating the Seattle Seahawks in 2015. Both contests are seen as two of the best Super Bowls in modern history.
New Orleans and Miami are the two most frequent Super Bowl hosts, with 10 apiece. Miami is set to host a Super Bowl in 2020, which would be its 11th. 2024 will be New Orleans' 11th overall and its eighth in the Superdome, which is the highest of any stadium.
New Orleans last hosted Super Bowl XLVII, a 34-31 Baltimore Ravens win over the San Francisco 49ers most famous for its third-quarter blackout.
