Following a few false starts, the 56th Super Bowl is scheduled to be played at the Los Angeles’ Rams new Inglewood stadium, the City of Champions Stadium, in California on February 7, 2022.
Inglewood was originally set to host the Super Bowl LV in 2021 following a fiercely contested bidding process between Tampa and Los Angeles. Los Angeles originally emerged triumphant in an NFL decision that was announced in May 2016 and plans were drawn up to host the 55th Super Bowl at the Ram’s new City of Champions Stadium in Inglewood, California. However, the Ram’s later announced that the completion of its new stadium would be a year later than initially anticipated. Record-setting rain levels had fallen during the excavation of the construction site in Inglewood, leading to significant issues that ultimately left the developers at least two months behind schedule.
Five days after the announcement that the Inglewood stadium would be delayed, the NFL unanimously agreed that Tampa would replace Los Angeles as the 55th Super Bowl hosts.
Fortunately for Los Angeles, the NFL owners also agreed that Super Bowl LVI would automatically be awarded to Los Angeles, meaning that Super Bowl would return to Los Angeles, just one year later than originally planned.
Super Bowl LVI will mark the eighth time the Super Bowl has been hosted in the Greater Los Angeles Area, the last of which was Super Bowl XXVII in 1993, which was held at the Rose Bowl. The 2022 Super Bowl will mark the first time in history the event has been held in the City of Inglewood.
Los Angeles spent over twenty years without a football team. However, the 2016 announcement that the Rams would say goodbye to St. Louis to return to their previous hometown of Los Angeles came as welcome news to NFL fans in the city. The Rams, who had left Los Angeles in 1994 following the news that the anticipated replacement stadium for the Anaheim Stadium would not be going ahead as planned, finally took matters into their own hands when Stan Kroenke announced that he would be spearheading a campaign to construct a new state-of-the-art stadium for the team in Inglewood, CA.
The new stadium, which is currently referred to as the City of Champions Stadium, was originally slated to open in 2019, with Los Angeles set to host Super Bowl LV in 2021; however, following unexpected delays, the opening of the stadium has been pushed back to 2020, and Los Angeles will now host Super Bowl LVI.
The City of Champions Stadium will sit at the heart of a thriving NFL City development that includes a variety of entertainment and commercial venues including offices, a hotel, a performing arts venue, lake, casino, retail spaces, and recreation areas.
The piece du resistance of the stadium itself with be a transparent glass roof that is designed to resemble a sail. The stadium will also incorporate a state-of-the-art video system named Oculus, an oval-shaped, video board that will hang from the stadium’s roof and occupy an area of approximately 50 feet by 120 yards.
