Super Bowl Shuffle: Tampa Moves In, L.A. Moves Back, More Changes To Come

By Barry Janoff

May 23, 2017: If you were planning to go to Los Angeles in February 2021 to see Super Bowl LV, change the arrangements to Tampa Bay.

Then, rework your L.A. trip for February 2022.

Maybe.

It was revealed last week that the opening of the $2.6 billion stadium being built in Inglewood (artist's rendition at right) for the recently relocated Los Angeles Rams and the even more recently relocated Los Angeles Chargers would delayed a year due Southern California experiencing record-setting rain this winter, from the 2019 NFL season to the 2020 season.

That set into motion several significant alternative plans, including NFL owners deciding during their Spring League Meeting in Chicago to move Super Bowl LV from Los Angeles to Tampa and award Super Bowl LVI to L.A.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium wouldl now be the host site for Super Bowl LV.

Tampa has hosted four previous Super Bowls: XVIII (1984), XXV (1991), XXXV (2001) and XLIII (2009).

Los Angeles has hosted seven previous Super Bowls, including what was then called the AFL-NFL World Championship Game in 1967, now known as Super Bowl I.

Representatives from Tampa and Los Angeles have 90 days to complete documents and submit them to the NFL for official approval, according to the league.

"The Tampa Bay area has enjoyed great success over the years hosting Super Bowls and we look forward to working with our local leaders in the coming months to meet the requirements for hosting Super Bowl LV in 2021," Bryan Glazer, co-chairman for the Buccaneers, said in a statement.

"Today's announcement offers us the opportunity to showcase Tampa Bay's unique ability to come together as a host for world-class events."

Raymond James Stadium, which hosted the CFB National Championship this past January, is currently undergoing a $150 million renovation.

Because the NFL requires stadiums to be open for two seasons before they can host a Super Bowl, Rams owners would have had to request a waiver from the league if they intended to host Super Bowl LV in its first season of operation.

Los Angeles ownership decided not to seek that waiver, per the NFL.

Tampa filled the vacancy after finishing second in voting to host Super Bowl LV when the original decision was made in May 2016.

The Super Bowl shuffle also impacts plans of other teams that might seek to submit bids to host future games, including the Detroit Lions.

Earlier this year, Lions president Rod Wood confirmed that the team planned to bid for the next available Super Bowl, which now becomes Super Bowl LVII in 2023.

At the owners meeting, Mark Davis, majority owner for the Oakland Raiders — to become the Las Vegas Raiders following an approved relocation for the 2020 season — and a member of the league's Super Bowl committee told the media that the situation with Los Angeles might lead to a change in the way the Big Game locations are decided.

"We were all spoken to individually this week to see how we felt about the (Los Angeles) situation," said Davis. "When we get together as a committee we'll obviously talk about the whole process, and how we handle that in the future."

One plan might be to add years onto the time between when a city is named as host and the game itself is actually played. Should the Raiders, for example, seek to host a Super Bowl in their new stadium, they too would be looking at Super Bowl LVII in 2023 at the earliest.

Also because of the delay in building the new stadium in Los Angeles, the Rams will play in the Los Angeles Coliseum and the Chargers will play at the StubHub Center through the 2019 season.

The upcoming Super Bowl schedule as it currently stands:

Super Bowl LII: U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis Feb. 4, 2018 NBC

Super Bowl LIII: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Feb. 3, 2019 CBS

Super Bowl LIV: Hard Rock Stadium, South Florida, Feb. 2, 2020 Fox

Super Bowl LV: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Feb. 7, 2021 NBC

Super Bowl LVI: Inglewood Stadium, Calif., Feb. 6, 2022 CBS
