The NFL has moved the Super Bowl scheduled for New Orleans, La., in 2024 to 2025, it was announced on Wednesday.
New Orleans and Mercedes-Benz Superdome were previously scheduled to host Super Bowl LVIII (58) on Sunday, Feb. 4, 2024, which culminates the 2023 NFL season. However, the move to a 17-game regular-season will push that date back by at least one week, which conflicts with Mardi Gras that is set to begin on Feb. 13.
Super Bowl LIX (59) will now be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in New Orleans on Sunday, Feb. 9, 2025. There will be no conflict with Mardi Gras that year, as it’s not scheduled to begin until March 4.
Super Bowl LV (55), this seasons final game, is scheduled to be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2021. Super Bowl LVI (56) is scheduled for the new SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., in 2022, while Super Bowl LVII (57) is slated for State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., in 2023.
The new site of the Super Bowl in 2024 (Super Bowl LVIII) will be announced at a later date. The new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, is one likely candidate.
