Santa Clara Stadium to Bid on Super Bowl L

Posted by Alex Espinoza on October 16, 2012 – 5:49 PM

The future home of the San Francisco 49ers has been selected as a finalist to host Super Bowl L in 2016. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell revealed the news on Tuesday, saying the new Santa Clara Stadium is vying with South Florida to become the site of the NFL’s 50th Super Bowl.

The announcement was well-received by 49ers Chief Executive Officer Jed York, who has spearheaded the team’s effort to open the new Santa Clara Stadium next to team headquarters in time for the 2014 season.

“We are excited to bid for the first Super Bowl in the Bay Area since January of 1985,” York said in a statement. “Nothing brings a region together like a Super Bowl. Now we have to work together to show the new stadium in Santa Clara will put on a great show.”

The Bay Area hasn’t hosted a Super Bowl since the 49ers defeated the Miami Dolphins 38-16 at Stanford Stadium in Super Bowl XIX.

The Bay Area and South Florida will present their bids for Super Bowl L at the NFL owners’ meetings in May 2013, before a vote is held to pick a winner. The runner-up of the Super Bowl L vote will then contend with Houston to become the site of Super Bowl LI.
