Report: NFL Exploring Alternate Venues for Super Bowl

Published

on

The NFL is exploring alternative sites in case it must move the venue for Super Bowl LVI, currently scheduled for February 13 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, according to a report by the Associated Press.

Among the alternative venues identified by the league is AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Contingency planning is a part of every Super Bowl, but with COVID-19 cases on the rise and California recently instituting a mask mandate, it’s possible that the game will not be able to be played in California.

AT&T Stadium was the home of the 2021 Rose Bowl, which was moved under similar circumstances out of California.

Super Bowl LV was played in front of 25% capacity at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. It’s unclear if the NFL would move the game if faced with a capacity restriction based on California or Los Angeles protocols.
